(WEST FARGO) -- Some residents in West Fargo say they have received postcards relating to last week's West Fargo Public Schools special election in the days following the vote.

"Why was it after the fact?" one person said. 

West Fargo Public Schools spokeswoman Heather Leas says the postcards came from a group not affiliated with West Fargo Public Schools.

"The district was not the organization that distributed the postcard," Leas said in an e-mail Sunday morning. "That was an effort spearheaded by the VOICE group."

When reached for comment, Jason Ehlert, leader of the group, said, "We have received several reports from WF School District voters of getting the mailers after the vote. We aren’t sure what happened and are looking into what caused the delay."
