Prescott AZ (August 24, 2020) – Recently, a citizen who received a phone call requesting to verify voter information records contacted the Yavapai County Recorder’s Office to determine if this is the normal course of business.
Yavapai County Recorder Leslie Hoffmann provides the following information:
‘The Yavapai County Recorder’s Office, Voter Registration or Election Department will never call and ask for any personal information pertaining to your voter registration records. Additionally, please do not provide your Driver’s License or Voter ID number should you be asked. You can always call the Yavapai County Recorder/Voter Registration Department at 928-771-3248 or email us at email@example.com should you want to verify your voter registration records.’
Your voter registration status can also be checked at http://my.arizona.vote.
This has been a scam around the country for years. Please share this notification with those who may not have access to local media release information. Again, the best defense against these scammers is to simply hang up the phone and not engage further.
