State election officials taking steps to correct erroneous voter mailing
Edgardo Cortés, Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Elections, issued the following statement regarding the misstep:
“As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure that the commonwealth's voter registration records are accurate, the Virginia Department of Elections (ELECT) routinely receives information for voters who may have changed their address," Cortés said. "To help voters update their registration, ELECT mailed letters to voters requesting that they review and update their information. Unfortunately, up to 125,000 voters erroneously received a letter indicating they had moved out of state, when in fact they may have moved within the state."
ELECT will send a follow-up mailing to the impacted voters to explain the error, provide instructions for verifying their current registration information, and reassure them that their voter registration has not been canceled.
