County clerk: Do not register to vote over the phone

Beware of calls from people pretending to be from county election offices!

During Tuesday's Saline County Commission meeting, Saline County Clerk Jamie Doss told commissioners that other counties are reporting calls from individuals pretending to be from county election offices trying to register people to vote over the phone.

She noted that people must either register online at www.voteks.org or in person at their county election office. Doss urged people to please not give out personal information over the phone.

Doss said personnel from the Saline County Clerk/Election Office will not call you to register you over the phone.

To check the status of your voter registration or your advance ballot by mail application, go to https://myvoteinfo.voteks.org/voterview/.

Doss said ballots will begin being mailed on Oct. 14, 2020, for the Nov. 3, 2020, general election.
