Voter Alert: Beware of Robocalls Making Misleading Statements

Santa Rosa, CA  –  October 16, 2018  –  Sonoma County election officials are alerting residents about a misleading robocall now circulating that wrongly claims there is an error in one of the ballot titles for the November 6 General Election. The call, sponsored by a campaign, states there is an error printed on the title for one of the propositions in voting materials mailed by County Registrars of Voters. Ballot titles are prepared by the state Attorney General, with no alterations by local Registrars of Voters.   

“During election season, voters should be aware of misleading claims that can cause confusion,” said William F. Rousseau, Sonoma County Registrar of Voters. “Our office takes election integrity seriously and will continue to monitor any issues or concerns brought to our attention.”  

Sonoma County urges voter to be vigilant about election-related robocalls or materials. For any questions or concerns, please email rov-polls@sonoma-county.org.
