[ARCHIVED] Commissioner’s Statement Regarding Misleading Letters Received by Virginians

Virginia Department of Elections Press Release

The Virginia Department of Elections has received numerous phone calls from concerned voters who received a letter suggesting their voter registration status was in question. Similar letters have been sent by at least two separate organizations – America’s Future, Inc. and the Voter Participation Center. Letters sent by these organizations have reportedly been addressed to individuals who were already properly registered, are not qualified to register at the mailing address used, or are deceased. Although these letters include our street address and contact information, these letters did not come from the Department and are not official election mail. As a reminder, Virginia voters can always confirm their current voter registration status and submit necessary updates on the Department of Elections’ secure Citizen Portal at Voters can disregard any information received from outside entities that contradict our official records. The Department of Elections remains committed to promoting and supporting accurate, fair, open, and secure elections for the citizens of the Commonwealth. Should you have additional questions, please contact us at (800) 552-9745 or via email at Edgardo Cortés Commissioner Virginia Department of Elections Media Contact: Martin Mash 804-864-8941; Martin.Mash@Elections.Virginia.Gov
