Oregonians statewide receiving robocalls regarding their voter registration

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 5, 2012

Salem – The Secretary of State’s office has learned that Oregonians statewide are receiving robocalls saying the voter registration of someone in their household may be inactive. These calls are not from county elections officials or the Secretary of State’s election division. County elections officials say in most cases, the registration of voters in the household are found to be up to date. Anyone with concerns can check or update their voter registration status online at www.oregonvotes.gov. The deadline to register to vote is October 16.

The Oregon Attorney General’s office also reports receiving complaints and is addressing the legality of whether robocalls are being made to those on the Do Not Call List.
