According to a release, these postcards did not come from Tarrant County, Tarrant County Elections Office, the county Republican or Democratic parties, or any known elected official or campaign in Tarrant County.
Sharen Wilson, criminal district attorney for Tarrant County, said all information shared with a third party is at the voter’s own risk, and Tarrant County has no control over it.
“Be careful. Be cautious about giving someone you don’t know your name, address, email or any other information,” Wilson said in a release. “You don’t know what they will do with your information.”
The website on the postcard asks voters to enter their name, address and zip code to “verify the vote,” per the news release. The website also encourages the same information to be shared of “family members, friends, neighbors and even deceased loved ones.”
Voters are not required to verify their votes, Wilson said.
