VOTER REGISTRATION TELEPHONE SCAM:

We are aware of reports of people receiving phone calls in which callers are impersonating organizations that provide voter registration assistance. In these instances (which to our knowledge have not occurred in Lincoln County), the callers have asked the recipients if they would like to register to vote or request an absentee ballot over the phone - followed by requests for personal information. There are several potential issues with this . . .

First, one cannot register to vote over the telephone. If you believe you have done so, there is every possibility that your name will not appear on the voter rolls on election day. Depending on the number of people victimized by the scam, actual voter turnout may be diminished.

Second, the information a victim might give to a scammer may be used to fraudulently register someone else to vote.

Lastly, a victim's personal information may be used by the scammer(s) for money-motivated identity theft.

We urge people to never divulge personal information over the telephone - no matter who you believe to be on the other end of the line.
