Attorney General Cameron reported that his office's Election Fraud Hotline has received complaints from Kentucky voters about this type of voting scam, and the office is currently investigating the complaints.

"We encourage anyone who encounters a potential voting scam to report it immediately to our Election Fraud Hotline at 1-800-328-VOTE."
Secretary of State Adams reminded Kentuckians that voting by email, phone, or text, is not an accepted voting method for Kentucky elections.
