With less than two months before the November General Election, Kentucky officials are getting the word out about two scams they are dealing with throughout the Bluegrass State.

Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron have announced that there are two election scams aimed at Kentucky voters.

The first scam invovles Kentuckians recieving letters from a group called "Center for Voter Information" that is pushing for voters to register to vote.  However, these letters are being sent to those who have already registered.  Adams and Cameron believe that this is to lead to confusion for registered Kentucky voters if they are able to vote at all.

"I condemn this shady out-of-state group and their efforts to tamper with our election," Adams said.

"They mislead voters, who then drive unecessary call volume to our overworked election officials around the state.  In fact, this group has even sent out voter registration materials with the wrong return-enevelope addresses."

They advise that Kentuckians to disregard any information from this groupl

Another scam has registered voters recieving a text from a "502" area code, saying that they are not registerd to vote and need to go to a website, ky.reg.com.  The website has been labeled fake and Attorney General Cameron believes that this website would be used to steal personal and financial information.

"We're committed to fully investigating and prosecuting any attemps to compromise our electorial process," said Cameron.

If you are a Kentucky resident and encounter a scam related to the November election, they are asking you to call the Consumer Protection Division at 1-888-432-9257 or visit ag.ky.gov/scams.
