Group Sends Voter Forms to Cat, Dead Dog in Va.

June 23, 2012

Two Virginia residents thought it was a joke when a nonprofit group sent voter registration forms to their homes.

That's because the forms were addressed to a cat and a dead dog.

Ursula Angeles of Virginia Beach tells WAVY-TV that she posted a picture of the form sent to her cat, Scampers, on her Facebook page.

Bedford County resident Tim Morris' dog, Mozart, also received a form. Mozart died two years ago.

Morris tells WSLS-TV that he laughed when he looked at the form.

The center works to increase voter participation. Center officials say it buys mailing lists from vendors.

The center made a video in response to critics of mailings mistakenly sent to pets. In it, a talking dog says, "Get more people to the polls. And don't sweat the cats."
