Protecting Voter Privacy
Information on your voter registration affidavit will be used by Elections Officials to send you official information on the voting process, such as the location of Vote Centers and the issues and candidates that will appear on the ballot. Commercial use of voter registration information is prohibited by law—it is a misdemeanor. Voter information may be provided to a candidate for office, a ballot measure committee or other persons for election, scholarly, journalistic, political or governmental purposes as determined by the Secretary of State. Your driver license number, Social Security number and signature as shown on your voter registration card cannot be released for these purposes. If you have any questions about the use of voter information or wish to report suspected misuse of such information, please call the Secretary of State’s Voter Protection and Assistance Hotline at (800) 345-VOTE.
Certain voters facing life-threatening situations may qualify for confidential voter status. For more information, please contact the Secretary of State’s Safe at Home program or visit the Secretary of State’s website.
