Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford today advised voters of a fraudulent letter questioning the citizenship status of at least two Escambia County voters. The letter has no ties to the Escambia County Supervisor of Elections Office.
“We want voters to be aware that this mailing did not come from our office and that we have notified the Florida Department of State and the State Attorney’s office,” Stafford said. “We are committed to ensuring the integrity of elections in Escambia County and protecting the voting rights of our citizens. We will continue to monitor this serious situation and will cooperate fully with the investigating authorities.”
Any voter who receives such a letter is encouraged to retain the envelope and all contents, and notify the elections office at (850) 595-3900 to report it. The fraudulent letter does not include Stafford’s signature and states that voters must respond within 15 days with the appropriate citizenship information. The fraudulent letter in no way impacts a voter’s eligibility.
A copy of the fraudulent letter is attached.
