JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Duval County Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland is warning voters of a fraudulent letter telling voters they must prove they are a citizen of the United States. The letter is fraudulent and is not from the Supervisor of Elections office.
Although the letterhead appears to be from Jerry Holland's office, even including a flat and an eagle in the top left corner, the letter is not from the Duval County Supervisor of Elections.
The letter states the elections office received information from the Division of Elections that questions their citizenship status, bringing into question their eligibility as a registered voter. The letter tells the recipient they have 15 days to bring information proving their citizenship to the Supervisor's main office downtown.

Holland's office said voters began receiving the letter October 18. The fake letter has a post mark from Seattle, Washington. Holland's office wants to emphasize the letter is not from the Supervisor's office.
Supervisor Holland is encouraging any voter who receives the letter to call the Election Office immediately at 904-630-1414. The elections office would like a copy of the fraudulent letter for further prosecution against the organization that sent the letter to Duval voters.
For more information, or to check your voter status, you are asked to call the Duval County Supervisor of Elections Office at 904-630-1414 or visit www.duvalelections.com and click "Voter Status."
