Election mailing in Idaho misleading

Secretary of State Lawerence Denney is alerting voters about a deceptive mailing from Stronger Idaho PAC that makes unauthorized use of the Idaho State Seal.

By including the state seal, the mailer may lead some recipients to think the mailer is official state mail.

It is not.

The use of the seal was not authorized by the Secretary of State.

“It is important to note that the information used on the postcard is public record, and does not suggest any breach of voter information,” Denney said. “This is a prime example of the importance of double-checking your election information with your trusted local and state election officials.”
