Fake Robocalls Confusing VA Voters

Earlier today, the Virginia State Board of Elections received complaints from voters in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia questioning automated calls telling registered voters their polling location had changed...when it hadn't. Some voters who received the pre-recorded call notified election officials.
