VOTER PARTICIPATION CENTER (VPR) MAILING
TO ALL ILLINOIS CITIZENS NOT REGISTERED TO VOTE
ILLINOIS – Peoria County Election Commission Executive Director Tom Bride announced today that all Election Authorities were recently advised by the Illinois State Board of Elections of a mailing that has gone out from the Voter Participation Center, (VPA) of Chicago, Illinois to all non-registered voters in the State of Illinois. This mailing contains a letter from the VPA and a voter registration form with the name and address of each applicable Election Authority. Since these notices are not originating from the Peoria County Election Commission office, but from an outside organization, there may be a possibility that some go out to those who are already registered to vote, those who have moved, as well as those who have passed away.
“We want to let everyone in Peoria County who receive this mailing know that our office will process all such voter registration forms properly completed and forwarded to our office.” said Bride. He continued, “We have been advised by the State Board of Elections that this is a legitimate company operating as a non-government, nonprofit, and nonpartisan 501 (c)(3) organization.”
If the public or media has any questions about this mailing, you are asked by the VPA to please contact them at their office at 27 N. Wacker Dr. #710, Chicago, IL 60606, or phone them at 877.255.6750. The VPA indicates that if anyone wants to be removed from their mailing lists to contact them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
