If you have received a mailer from the Americans For Prosperity Foundation requesting you update your voter registration - it's far from valid.

Secretary of State Natalie E. Tennant issued a press release on the issue, Tuesday. The mailer states you will lose your right to vote in the upcoming election if you don't update your voter registration. It will even include a voter registration card and a new pre-paid return envelope addressed to your county clerk.

People in eight different counties have already received the mailer - including some in Marion County.

Tennant stressed the only way you should renew your registration is if you have moved, changed your name or switched political parties.

"If you have not moved, changed your name, or switched political parties, then you should throw this mailer into the trash because your voter registration is still valid," Tennant said. "We were made aware of this situation because there was a large number or confused citizens calling our office and the offices of county clerks asking questions about why they had to update their voter registration information. The Secretary of State's Office did not send this mailer and it did not come from county clerks. We don't know what the purpose of the mailer is but we do know that it is confusing citizens."
