LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The Lee County Supervisor of Elections said these letters are trying to discourage people from voting or they're trying to steal personal information.
The letter is from Seattle and it is making its way to at least 20 Florida counties. The letter is marked as being from the Supervisor of Elections and claims the voter was taken off the rolls because they aren't citizens.
Sharon Harrington, the Lee County Supervisor of Elections, said while they've only seen a few cases, her office wants to make sure residents are aware of the fraudulent letter.
"People have to be very very careful, we're cautioning anybody, if there's anything that does not look like it came from us, they just need to bring it to our attention," said Harrington.
Harrington said people need to pay attention to the postage. Her office only sends these types of letters by certified mail. If you receive one, report it.
