Oregon County Election offices have been notified by a number of residents who have reported receiving automated calls today saying their voting status is “inactive” and that they may not receive a ballot to vote during the November 6 election. Oregon State Elections is investigating the matter and will provide additional information to the media and public as soon as more is learned.
In the meantime, voters should be aware of the following information provided by Deschutes County residents who received an automated call and have contacted the Deschutes County Elections Office:
The phone number reflected by Caller ID is (503) 388-3760
The name reflected on Caller ID is Oregon Small Business Association
The message received by these residents is similar to “You or someone in your household has an inactive voting status. While you may think you are registered to vote, you may not receive a ballot.”
Deschutes County Elections has researched the voting status of those who received robotic calls today-ALL have been active voters, rendering the calls false.
Voters may visit www.oregonvotes.gov under “My Vote” to check their voter registration status and make any updates they wish.
