Kemp warns public of voter registration fraud

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) Secretary of State Brian Kemp is reminding the public to stay alert for those who may be collecting personal data during voter registration drives. <br /> <br /> Kemp says his office this week has received reports of voter registration drives where such information is collected that could be used for identity theft. He says residents don't have to provide an email address, phone number or full social security number in order to register to vote. <br /> <br /> Kemp also says members of the public should never give personal information over the phone to anyone claiming to register voters. <br /> <br /> He encourages those with an ID issued by the Department of Driver Services to use the state's secure online voter registration system. That can be accessed at the Secretary of State's website at www.sos.ga.gov.
