Phone calls give Pasco voters incorrect dates
The Pasco County Supervisors of Elections Office is warning voters of misleading automated phone calls that incorrectly say early voting has begun. Brian E. Corley said his offices have been inundated with hundreds of voters alerted by robo-calls from Organizing for America that early voting started today. Early voting does not begin until Oct. 27, but when a voter came to the Land O' Lakes office today expecting to cast his ballot The voter produced his cell phone with the recorded message and number it came from."I have made contact with the Organizing for America folks and they are aware of the situation. They have pledged to cease sending voters confusing messages with misinformation and will re-evaluate the robo-call message," Corley said. Voters with questions can call Corley's office at (800) 851-8754 or visit pascovotes.com.
