Oklahoma voters are being warned of a phishing scam regarding personal information that could lead users to a malicious website.

According to the Oklahoma State Election Board officials, voters are cautioned to look out for emails claiming the recipient’s voter information needs to be changed or verified. The emails claim to be from state or county election boards, reports the OSEB.

The link provided in the emails will send users to a malicious website. To avoid this issue, OSEB suggests not opening any links from any email sent unsolicited from someone claiming to be an election official.

They went on to say that all communications regarding changes in voter information or the need to verify registration information would be sent by mail not through email.

If you’re concerned about registration information, the Oklahoma State Election Board urges users to visit this website, contact their county or state election board. The number for the state election board is 405-521-2391.
