Election officials in Indianapolis say some voters have received text messages reminding them to vote but directing them to the wrong polling place.

Marion County Clerk’s Office Deputy Director Russell Hollis says he received emails Sunday from three voters saying they received texts listing the incorrect polling place for them to vote.

And he says one person who cast an early ballot Monday at downtown Indianapolis’ City-County Building said he received one of the texts with an incorrect polling location while waiting in the early voting line.

Hollis says he forwarded the emails to the U.S. Attorney’s office, the Marion County Prosecutor’s office and Indianapolis police.

He says voters can verify their polling place via the Secretary of State’s office’s website or Marion County’s website.
