Kansas AG Investigating Robo Calls

By  | 

Topeka (WIBW) - The Kansas Attorney General's Office says it has opened an investigation into claims of misleading robo calls.

The Kansas Democratic Party said a Republican organization it hasn't identified made automated calls telling voters to bring a voter registration card and proof of home ownership with them when they vote Tuesday.

Those items are not required.

“There is no place for voter intimidation in our electoral process,” said Kansas Democratic Party Chairman Larry Gates. “Every Kansas voter should feel comfortable with their right to cast a ballot and understand tactics like these are lies meant to scare them away from exercising that right.”

Gavin Young, spokesperson for the Kansas AG's Office, says misleading an individual about their ability to vote is voter intimidation.

"It is not just a political ploy, it is a felony," he said.

Anyone who feels they were midlead about their ability to vote should call the AG's office at 1-800-432-2310.
