GA Sec. of State warns of voter fraud

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp is warning those who register to vote to be careful with the information you give out.

Kemp believes some personal information collected in some voter registration drives could be used for identity theft.

Dougherty County Elections supervisor Ginger Nickerson says only your name, a verifiable address, and the last four digits of your social security number are needed to register to vote.

She says the safest way to register is through the secretary of state's website.

"This allows any individual to put their information on their computer, that will be sent to the county you are residing in. We input you in and allow you to vote," said Nickerson.

Anyone wanting to report any sort of fraud can do so by linking to this story on our website.

The deadline to register for the November general election is October 6th.

If you suspect any type of voter fraud, visit www.sos.ga.gov or call 1-877-725-9797.
