Some residents have made comments about how paid canvassers that they don’t know are asking them if they want help filling out and returning their ballots.
According to one Santa Claran who engaged in conversation with a paid canvasser, the 49ers are paying them $30 per hour to walk for Anthony Becker, Raj Chahal, and Karen Hardy.
The canvasser had Becker’s materials but didn’t know anything about him.
Santa Clara City Clerk Hosam Haggag said that any complaints about canvassers or people asking should be referred to the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters.
According to Michael Borja of the Registrar’s Office, Santa Clara residents can call 866-430-VOTE (8683) to file complaints locally.
A voter can also call the Secretary of State’s Office at 800-345-VOTE (8683).
