Dead cat voting? Flier leads to some confusion

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A Florida election official is working to help confused voters after one person reported that a registration flier had been sent home for her dead cat.

Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Michael Ertel said Thursday that he has set up a website to vet election mailings. He says he was motivated by the cat incident, in which a voter told him a Washington-based advocacy group had sent the mailing.

Ertel says the website will educate voters about which fliers are legitimate and which aren’t.

The elections supervisor says some of the out-of-state fliers from interest groups can confuse voters.
