Voter Scam Isn't a Scam

Virginia State Police tracked the source of phone calls and voter registration packets in the mail and the organization behind the drive is on the up-and-up.

State police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the State Board of Elections requested the investigation after voters in a dozen localities received phone calls this week telling them they would receive a voter registration application packet in the mail. They were told to complete the enclosed form, sign it and mail it back.

Police say the phone calls and packets were generated by Women's Voices Women Vote, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in Washington, D.C.

Geller says the voter registration application in the packet is a legitimate form accepted by the State Board of Elections.
