PHOENIX – With the early voting period for the General Election already underway, the Secretary of State’s Office is reminding voters to verify election-related information with Arizona election officials, their trusted sources of information.
The office has received numerous inquiries regarding voters receiving communications from third party groups related to their voter registration or voting history.
“As we get closer to Election Day, voters may receive information from organizations via mailers, postcards and text messages,” Secretary Katie Hobbs said. “These groups are often well meaning and are trying to be helpful but are working with outdated information.”
Hobbs added that many of these third parties have an option to opt out of receiving further communication. Voters should check the received materials closely to find organization information and opt out options.
Voters who are concerned about third party mailings can verify their information by visiting Arizona.Vote or by calling 1-877-THE-VOTE. They may also reach out to their county election officials. A full list of contact information is available at https://azsos.gov/county-election-info.
The Arizona Secretary of State’s Office is participating in the National Association of Secretaries of State for its #TrustedInfo2020 campaign, which encourages voters to go directly to election officials’ websites and verified social media pages to ensure they are getting accurate information throughout the election cycle. Election Day is Nov. 3.
