A Linn County voter who voted absentee on October 8th just emailed us and said she received a text message from 515-400-0131. The text reads: Trump Alert: PENDING. As of 10/25, your early vote is NOT RECORDED on Iowa’s roster. Find your polling place >> https://vote.gop/30IA
The phone number the text came from is “not in-service”.
If you received a similar text, please forward it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 319-892-5300. The text could be an honest error; or it could be otherwise. Let’s find out how many residents received it and collect some data before jumping to conclusions. – Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
