HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) –  The Virginia Department of Elections is warning citizens that letters sent from organizations suggesting their voter registration status was in question did not come from them.

The letters have been sent by two separate organizations; America’s Future, Inc. and the Voter Participation Center. The letters were reportedly addressed to individuals who were already properly registered, are not qualified to register at the mailing address used, or are deceased. They are not official election mail.

Virginia voters can confirm their current voter registration status and submit necessary updates on the Department of Elections’ secure Citizen Portal at vote.virginia.gov. Voters can disregard any information received from outside entities that contradict official records.

Anyone with any questions should contact the Virginia Department of Elections at (800) 552-9745 or by email at info@elections.virginia.gov.
