Callers Scamming Potential Voters for Personal Information

On Wednesday, October 18, 2018, Attorney General Andy Beshear issued a scam alert to help Kentuckians avoid providing their personal information over the phone to a scammer who claims he or she can help Kentuckians register to vote or vote by absentee ballot. Beshear said the National Association of State Election Directors issued a warning after voters in Mississippi said scammers were calling pretending to be employees of TurboVote, a legitimate voter registration service, requesting Social Security and driver’s license numbers. Officials confirmed the calls are not affiliated with the organization. The deadline to register to vote in Kentucky for the November 6, 2018 election was October 9, 2018.
