In an effort to increase voter turnout, some voters may have received incorrect information from a third party organization, Emily’s List, a national grassroots political network. The organization launched a telephone campaign designed to remind voter’s of tomorrow’s election, polling place hours and the location of their polling place. Unfortunately, some voters may have received incorrect information with regard to the location of their polling place.

Marci Andino, executive director of the State Election Commission encourages voters who are unsure of their polling place location to check their registration information.

“We appreciate the intentions of Emily’s List in increasing voter participation,” said Andino. According to an Emily’s List spokesperson, approximately 171,000 calls were made to voters.
