The Johnson County Election Office urged residents to not give out personal information after some reported instances of someone going door to door asking residents for voter registration information.

Why it matters: The county election office says it is not involved in any effort to collect voter information door to door and that “any statements or purported registration information from these individuals” has not been verified by the county.
