TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! STREETCAR EXTENSION BALLOT HACKED!!! KANSAS CITY VOTERS FEAR ONLINE PHISHING SCAM AMID CURRENT ELECTION!!!
Voters in Midtown Kansas City are being confronted with a great many e-mails and inquiries working to garner data for the current streetcar extension vote that's now underway.
Here's a screenshot example of a form currently circulating among Midtown voters that asks for sensitive data to support or reject the streetcar BUT the site FAILS to disclose ownership info or affiliation.
This site where we pulled this from is one among many that doesn't offer any note to voters about how their data will be used or who is collecting that information. The website could be owned by opponents of the streetcar or detractors . . . Or it could be a hacker. The fact that this website is out there preying upon voters THREATENS THE VALIDITY OF THE STREETCAR EXTENSION VOTE!!!
Accordingly . . .
TKC WARNING!!! PHISHING SCAMMERS AND DIGITAL PRIVACY ATTACKERS ARE TARGETING MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY VOTERS AMID STREETCAR EXTENSION VOTE CONFUSION!!!
Because this isn't a public vote, because registered voters are forced to "apply" to cast their ballot . . . Local e-mail boxes have been slammed with suspicious requests that are both unofficial and confusing to residents inside the proposed TDD and throughout Midtown.
As a public service, our blog community warns that we are only able to confirm the court website which directs voters to a paper ballot:
Even the streetcar website offers very little info about voting in the extension election.
In fact, only our TKC blog community has posted info about "how to apply to vote" amid the election that's underway right now.
The rest of the election information data mining has a corrupt, sketchy and unofficial look to it.
And so . . .
These are all questions the streetcar critics are hoping to ask at tomorrow's big transit meet & greet.
