SAN ANGELO, TX – After receiving multiple calls from concerned citizens, the Tom Green County Election’s office would like to remind citizens they are not mailing out voter registration applications for current or deceased family members.
“I understand that it can be upsetting to receive these forms, especially for deceased family members”, stated election administrator Vona Hudson, “but we are not mailing them and we are more than happy to make sure that the records are correct for anyone that wants to check the information we have.”
Voters are encouraged to call 325-659-6541 to verify their registration status if they are unsure whether or not they are registered and if they received one for a deceased family member.
Those forms are mailed by different groups that are trying to ensure that everyone is registered and that their registration is current. As of this time the elections office is not aware where the organizations obtained the names for the mailings that were sent out.
“We do receive forms from voters that need to be registered and/or updated so it can be a helpful tool,” said Hudson. “If the voter will examine the form closely, they will find the name of the group that has mailed the form to them and establish that we did not mail it to them.”
