FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, September 28, 2020 – MONTGOMERY – The Office of the Secretary of State has once again been made aware of organizations spreading false information related to the electoral process in Alabama.
“Yet again, we have witnessed a national organization attempt to influence an Alabama election through sending out false information related to the absentee voting process. Alabama voters should exercise caution and refrain from following links, emails, or returning mail sent by third parties,” stated Secretary of State John H. Merrill. “AlabamaVotes.gov is the trusted source for election information in Alabama and voters should use this resource before resorting to any other site.”
In recent days, Alabama voters have received absentee ballot applications with incorrect return addresses mailed to them from outside organizations.
“Voters should be aware of these partisan campaigns meant to influence the outcome of the election. In order for your vote to be counted for the candidate of your choice, be sure to visit AlabamaVotes.gov or contact your county election official to see that you are supplied with accurate, up-to-date, and complete information,” concluded Merrill.
For questions or concerns, please contact the Office of the Secretary of State at (334) 242-7200.
