PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — Individuals not affiliated with the Pasco County Supervisor of Elections are going door-to-door asking people how they voted in the 2020 general election.

That's what officials from the office said Wednesday after a person reportedly went to a voter's home and falsely identified themselves as a voting official. 

"Staff does not come to your house inquiring as to your voting history," the supervisor of elections office said.

Officials are hoping to raise awareness of the issue, as they say these activities are happening in other Florida counties, too.

Third-party groups do have the right to see certain voter information, including:

  • Names
  • Addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Email addresses
  • Designated political parties
  • Elections voted in

If anyone comes to your house and says they are with "Pasco County" or the "Pasco County Supervisor of Elections' Office," you are asked to contact the office at 1-800-851-8754.
