Kansans should be wary of unsolicited e-mails or calls requesting Social Security or credit card numbers to confirm voter registration eligibility.
The Kansas Attorney General's office issued a warning Thursday about the scams, which have been reported in other states.
Scammers may send messages asking for Social Security numbers or financial information - supposedly to register you to vote or to confirm your registration - in an attempt at identity theft. As a rule, organizations conducting legitimate voter registration drives either contact you in person or give you a voter registration form that you fill out. They will never ask for financial information.
Report any scams to the attorney general at (800) 432-2310 or go to www.ksag.org.
