Center for Voter Information mailers: Intimidating or helpful?


Four Linn County voters have called Elections Services to complain about mail from the Center for Voter Information. They felt intimidated by the mailing. Another voter complained and brought us two mailings she had received from the Center.

We have received complaints on these types of mailers in past elections and the Iowa Attorney General and the US District Attorney reviewed those past mailers. Although neither attorney appreciated the mailers, they determined they were not illegal in that election cycle, i.e., in 2016

The purpose of this post is to inform you that we are aware of the mailers. If you feel intimidated by the mailers, then I suggest you contact the Center for Voter Information and let them know how you feel.

Unfortunately, there is nothing my office can do to stop these mailers from being delivered to your mailbox. –Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
