The State Board of Elections has notified us of the following:
“We have become aware that individuals, across multiple counties, have been going door to door impersonating County Board of Elections staff. These individuals are confronting voters regarding their registration status and accusing voters of committing a crime because they appear in the state voter database more than once.“
If this happens to you, please contact the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Department.
