Oklahoma election officials warn of email phishing scam

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma election officials say emails designed to look like communications from state or county election boards are being fraudulently sent to some Oklahoma voters.

Officials warned voters to be cautious Wednesday after some reported receiving emails indicating their voter information had been changed or needs verification.

Officials say the emails contain a link to a malicious website and should not be opened. Communications regarding changes in voter information or the need to verify registration are sent by the U.S. mail and not through email.

People can verify their registration information and access other information through the Oklahoma State Election Board’s official website. The election board responds to emails sent through a web form on its website.
