Skagit County does not have a roll in recent door-to-door 'Elections Integrity Audit'

Skagit County has received multiple questions from community members about individuals that have been going door to door throughout the community asking for personal information related to voting eligibility. Most of these individuals are believed to be affiliated with an ongoing Voter Integrity Project.

County government, including the Skagit County Auditor, are not involved with this project. Skagit County Elections staff will never come to your home.

“We of course respect the right of this group to attempt to collect information for whatever purpose they feel is necessary, but the confusion has become such in recent days that-- after speaking with the involved group-- we needed to clarify this issue with the community,” said Skagit County Auditor Sandy Perkins. “This is not an official government survey, and community members should not feel compelled to answer questions unless they want too.”

Misrepresenting oneself as a Skagit County employee is a crime of criminal impersonation in the first degree. Skagitonians are asked to please report anyone coming to their home specifically claiming to be Skagit County elections personnel to scelections@co.skagit.wa.us or by calling 360-416-1702. Written reporting is preferred.     

Trespassing can be reported to the Skagit Sheriff’s office by calling 911. If you have questions, or need additional information, please contact 360-416-1702.
