Cuyahoga County officials are telling residents to hang up on phone calls that falsely claim polling locations are closed.

Shaker Heights residents recently told officials about receiving robocalls saying polls in Shaker Heights will be closed on Election Day and Shaker residents had to go downtown to vote.  

This is FALSE.

The polls are open in Shaker Heights from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Election Day.

The best way to avoid robocall scams is to ignore them and report them.

County officials are asking residents to call the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections at (216) 443-8683 to report suspicious vote related robocalls.

Cuyahoga County residents should call the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections for any voting related questions.
