How to check on your voter-registration status (Yavapai County)

PRESCOTT — In the lead up to the election season this year, Yavapai County announced that new voter registration cards have been distributed and also warned voters about scam texts claiming they are not registered.

County Recorder Michelle Burchill said the new voter registration identification cards were due to a change in precinct numbers, names and boundaries.

“Voters who have recently submitted changes to their voter registration such as political party, residential address or mailing address, will receive another voter registration identification with those reflected changes,” she stated in a news release. Burchill encouraged voters to dispose of their older voter ID cards.

Tuesday, Burchill noted a disturbing trend of text messages that did not come from her office.

“Our office has recently been contacted by registered voters who have received spam text messages stating they are not registered to vote,” she stated.
