Public Voter Data and Information Requests FAQs

Q1. Does the Secretary of State post my personal voter information online?

A1. No. However, the Secretary of State is required by law to maintain a variety of information about registered voters and some of this information is “public record”. The Secretary of State is also required by law to give out this “public record” information to people who ask for it, without regard to how they might use the information.

Q2. Will the Secretary of State give out my personal information to anyone who asks?

A2. No. Your social security number, driver’s license number, month and day of birth, signature, and email address are confidential and will not be released to a member of the public who asks for it.

Q3. What information in my voter record is considered “public”?

A3. Your full name, residential address, party affiliation and date of affiliation, phone number (if provided by the voter), gender identity (if provided by the voter), birth year, and information about whether you have voted in prior elections is public information. The Secretary of State is required by the law to give this information to any member of the public who asks for it.

Q4. I believe that releasing this public information may put me or my family’s safety at risk. Is there anything that I can do?

A4. If you believe that you or a member of your household will be exposed to criminal harassment or bodily harm because your voter information is publicly available, you may elect to become a confidential voter. Confidential voters’ voting information will not be released to the public. To become a confidential voter, you must go to your local county clerk and recorder’s office, fill out a voter confidentiality form, and pay a $5.00 fee.
