FCVEF Statement on 2018 Voter Registration Program
Florida Conservation Voters Education Fund is committed to ensuring that everyone who can vote is registered and prepared to vote. We are proud of this important work to help thousands of voters in Florida register to vote in 2018. We are also committed to operating within the rules and we take our civic responsibility seriously. State law requires that we turn in every single registration form collected, including those that may be problematic. We monitored our progress and voluntarily reported issues we discovered. This summer, after discovering that proper procedures were not being followed, we immediately notified the appropriate elections authorities and voluntarily suspended operations while we conducted an internal audit. We ultimately decided to voluntarily cease voter registration operations for the remainder of 2018, and no one directly involved in the program is still employed by FCVEF. We would of course assist any authorities looking into any unresolved issues.
Florida Conservation Voters Education Fund is a non-profit 501c3 committed to protecting Florida’s environment and public health by enhancing the capacity of the conservation community, and educating citizens and policymakers. Learn more at www.fcvedfund.org
