SECRETARY OF STATE WARNS OF ELECTION MISINFORMATION

Monday, October 31, 2022

TOPEKA – Secretary of State Scott Schwab today warned of text messages containing election misinformation being sent to Kansas voters. These text messages appear to be from an out-of-state organization called Voting Futures and often direct the voter to an incorrect polling location within their county.

“Voters should be on high alert for these messages,” said Secretary Schwab. “The Secretary of State’s office does not use third parties to contact voters or share election information on our behalf. State and local election officials are the trusted sources for election information, and I encourage voters to contact our office or their county election office for assistance.”

We encourage voters to confirm their polling place and preview their ballot before heading to the polls. Election information can be found on the Secretary of State’s election website, VoteKansas.gov.

Voters may also contact the Elections Division at 785-296-4561 if they have questions or require additional information.
