Valley Woman Concerned about Voter Registration Form
WESLACO – A Rio Grande Valley woman is concerned about her voter registration form.
Maria Armstrong tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS she already registered to vote but received a letter reminding to her register before the deadline.
Those who received an ‘update your voter registration’ letter may believe it’s from the secretary of state's office but it’s actually from the state democratic executive committee.
“I'm confused and I'm concerned. I told my son what if other people got this letter and are as confused as I am. Are they going to go vote or go afraid to vote like I was?” says Armstrong.
The Secretary of state's office says those who are concerned about voter registration can call the county elections office to make sure.
KRGV’s Angelo Vargas reached out to the Secretary of State’s office about the issue.
The office sent out a statement that reads in part:
"We have made clear to the concerned Texans who have called us that these mailers were not sent by our office, and that deceased persons and non-citizens are not eligible to register to vote in the State of Texas."
