The Better Business Bureau is warning residents about election scams, which can come as a phone call, email or text message.

"A lot of these phishing messages are going to look like polls or surveys or even a request for a donation," said Rebecca Barr with the BBB. "But they are all after your personal and financial information. We've even seen some phishing messages coming out saying 'You're not registered to vote' and again, they're after that personal information."
