Secretary of State investigating reports of erroneous text messages to voters


DES MOINES - The Iowa Secretary of State's Office has received reports from four counties of text messages to some voters with incorrect polling place information. We are currently investigating these reports. Some of the erroneous text messages start with, "Tomorrow is the Democratic Primary", and do not identify the source.

If you are not sure where you vote, contact your county auditor or use our polling place lookup tool at https://sos.iowa.gov/elections/voterreg/pollingplace/search.aspx.

We will provide more information when it becomes available.
