News 4 Tucson Investigators look into mystery mailer

Posted: Updated:

The News 4 Tucson investigators have recently been getting calls from people concerned about what they believe is a confusing letter they received in the mail. So, we decided to look into who is behind the mailing.

The letter appears, at least to some people, to be official government business. It turns out, this has happened before. 

“This is not the first time they've done this. They've done it several years back going back to when Jan Brewer was secretary of state,” said Pima County Recorder, F. Ann Rodriguez.

Rodriguez is talking about the Voter Participation Center. Her office, like the News four Tucson Investigators, has been getting calls from voters who are confused about the form they received in the mail.

“People are dead, people are already registered. You've seen a couple of them that - that's not my legal name, that's not my middle name. It just goes on and on and on,” Rodriguez told the News 4 Tucson Investigators.

The return address on the envelope from the Voter Participation Center goes back to the Pima County Recorder’s Office. But, according to Rodriguez, her office did not send out the mailing.

“It's not coming from a governmental entity. We do not do these things,” Rodriguez said.

According to the Washington D.C.-based center, the goal of the mailer is to get more U.S. citizens registered to vote.

“We respect your privacy the only goal we have is to get people registering and voting,” said Page Gardner, the founder of the Voter Participation Center.

Gardner told the News 4 Tucson Investigators that the group is non-profit and non-partisan. She added that they have been able to get about 100,000 citizens registered to vote in Arizona over the past decade.

“Every single application that a person fills out goes directly to a state official, a state elections official. We don't see anything on your voter registration application form,” Gardner told the News 4 Tucson Investigators.

    What dolphins and whales can teach us about gossip

    Dolphins and whales speak in accents. They have “hit” songs. They have names for each other and they might gossip. A new study shows the most social dolphins and whales also have larger, more complex brains. It’s the latest study supporting the idea that big brains evolved to handle the demands of socializing, and not for some other reason. In other words, humans may be so intelligent because we gossip. “What we can say for sure with the dolphins and whales ...
