“Mysterious ‘vote-shaming’ mailer investigated ahead of Northern California special election”

Sacramento Bee:

Just days before a state Senate special election Tuesday, a mysterious letter threatening to publicly expose voters who don’t cast ballots has begun appearing in mailboxes across Northern California, prompting a state inquiry into whether election laws have been violated. 

Residents from Fair Oaks and Folsom to Rescue and Rocklin and beyond say they have received a mailer revealing neighbors’ and strangers’ voting history, and threatening to reveal their own voting records after the June 4 Senate District 1 special election “so we can see how we did together.”…

The Northern California State Voter Project does not have a website, phone number or public representatives, only a West Sacramento post office box number. The group is not listed as a campaign committee on the California Secretary of State website.

Kiley’s campaign had “nothing to do with” the mailer, said spokeswoman Emily Humpal.

Dahle’s campaign did not respond to requests for comment.
