The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) and the Yuma County Recorder’s Office (YCRO) are working together to actively examine cases of voting fraud from the 2020 General Election and now a recent pattern of fraudulent voter registration forms leading up to the 2022 Primary Election.
Do not fill out voter registration forms in the community unless it is a County employee as these are being mined for personal information and often take over a month to be submitted to the County Recorder’s Office for processing.
YCSO and YCRO advise all Yuma County residents to go directly to the Yuma County Recorder’s Office or Arizona Secretary of State’s Office to register to vote, check their voter registration status and/or update their voter registration in advance of the voter registration deadline of Tuesday, July 5, 2022.
If Yuma County voters find any incorrect information in their current voter registration record, please notify the County Recorder’s Office immediately at (928) 373-6034 or email@example.com.
Anyone with information regarding voter fraudulent schemes or believe they have been a victim of a fraudulent vote, please contact the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office at 928-783-4427 or 78-CRIME to remain anonymous. You can also visit our website at www.yumacountysheriff.org to submit an anonymous tip.
Some examples of voter fraud Yuma County is currently seeing are the following:
· Impersonation fraud: Voting in the name of other legitimate voters and voters who have died or moved away.
· False registrations: Falsifying voter registrations by either using a real or fake name, birth date, or address. This is being done by outreach groups who are paid for each registration form they submit, therefore, are out soliciting voters into unnecessarily re-registering or falsifying forms with Yuma County resident’s identities.
· Duplicate voting: Submitting multiple votes or registering in multiple locations and voting in the same election in more than one jurisdiction or state.
· Fraudulent use of absentee ballots: Requesting absentee ballots and voting without the knowledge of the actual voter; or obtaining the absentee ballot from a voter and either filling it in directly and forging the voter’s signature or illegally telling the voter who to vote for.
If you suspect or witness individuals committing any of the mentioned voting frauds, share their name or any other identifying information to law enforcement immediately.

National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day is a day for those who care about the unborn to make their convictions known in yet another way. The day is coming around again, on April 26. Those who don pro-life shirts on April 26 are urged to share photos of themselves on social media to help spread recognition of this unique effort on behalf of the unborn. Use the hashtags #prolife and #prolifetshirtday.
National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day actually has expanded to three days – in January, April and October. The fall date is set for Oct. 4.
National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day started in 1993 as a way to encourage pro-life youth. Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said pro-life shirts help people who care about the unborn to recognize and connect with each other. In 2021 a new t-shirt design was issued - a silhouette of the Statue of Liberty and the message “Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for All Humans Born and Unborn.” That shirt is still in stock along with several other shirts. See them all at ProLifeProducts.org.
Priests for Life is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion. For more information, visit www.EndAbortion.US.
