Elections Commissioner Warns Residents of Fraudulent Phone Polling Claiming to be from the Boston Election Department

Geraldine Cuddyer, Chair of Boston’s Board of Election Commissioners, reminds all voters that the Election Department does not conduct any kind of telephone polling or surveys of voters.

“It has been brought to my attention over the weekend that voters are receiving telephone calls regarding voter preferences. The callers are identifying themselves as being from the Boston Election Department,” Cuddyer said. “Voters should be aware that any caller conducting a survey, and claiming to be Election Department personnel, is engaging in fraudulent behavior. The Election Department staff is working around the clock getting ready for the September 24 Preliminary Election. The Election Department prides itself on conducting fair and impartial elections, and I take great offense at anyone misusing the Department’s name.”
