Last week GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s campaign sent out a mailer to registered voters in Iowa.
It looked like a manila envelope, and on one side, it reads: “ELECTION ALERT,” “VOTER VIOLATION,” “PUBLIC RECORD,” and “FURTHER ACTION NEEDED.” On the reverse, it states, “VOTING VIOLATION:”
“You are receiving this election notice because of low expected voter turnout in your area. Your individual voting history as well as your neighbors’ are public record. Their scores are published below, and many of them will see your score as well. CAUCUS ON MONDAY TO IMPROVE YOUR SCORE and please encourage your neighbors to caucus as well. A follow-up notice may be issued following Monday’s caucuses.”
An Iowa resident Tom Hinkelday tweeted a copy of the mailer. His, his wife’s name, and five of their neighbors were listed.
