Brian Corley Voter Alert: Attempting to Vote Twice is Illegal

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – Brian Corley, Supervisor of Elections, discourages voters from attempting to vote twice to “test” the system for the upcoming November 3, 2020, General Election. Recent media coverage of the President encouraging voters to send in vote-by-mail ballots and go to vote in person could lead to violations of both state and federal law.

“While we all want to ensure the integrity of any election, voters need to be aware that per Florida law, any voter who willfully votes or attempts to vote both in person and by mail is committing a felony and will be referred to the State Attorney’s Office for prosecution.”

Going to an early voting site or Election Day polling place to “verify” your

vote-by- mail ballot was received is neither appropriate nor necessary and will only serve to cause unnecessary delays for those who are in line to vote.

Ensuring your voted ballot is received by the elections’ office has never been easier by using our ballot tracking system at https://www.pascovotes.gov/TrackYourBallot.  Pasco voters can opt to receive e-mail and/or text alerts when their ballot is received in our office.  Voters can also check the status of their ballot at www.pascovotes.gov, in-person at one of our offices, or by calling 800-851-8754.

Comments or statements that call into question the integrity of our well- established and transparent election administration processes and procedures only erodes voter confidence and continues polarization at a time when confidence in the process is sorely needed.  Ironically, eroding voter confidence and polarizing the electorate was the goal of nefarious Russian state actors in 2016 as documented in the unanimous and bipartisan reports of both the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (Chaired by Senator Marco Rubio) and Volume I of the Mueller Report.
