Voter Registration Phone Scam Hits Maine
According to WMTW, phone scammers have found yet another way to get your personal information, by convincing you to register to vote over the phone.
I checked out Maine.gov to get the real scoop on registering to vote in Maine:
- The first thing you might want to know if you get one of these calls is that you CAN NOT register to vote by phone!
- You must fill out a voter registration card at your town office, city hall, motor vehicle branch, most state and federal social service agencies and voter registration drives.
- Completed cards must be sent to the Secretary of State's Office in Augusta or hand delivered/mailed to your city hall or town office.
- Wen have passed the cut off date for registering to vote by mail but you can still register at your town hall or city hall.
- Our next Statewide General and Referendum Election is is Nov. 6, 2018.
