Voter Privacy Becoming an Issue

With a revised policy on voting in Wisconsin, a government watchdog group now says allowing a unique voter identification number to be made public violates state privacy laws.

The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign is taking issue with a recent memo from the State Elections Board. In it, the board says voter I.D. numbers are public information. The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign is pointing to a Wisconsin law that certain information contained in the state database is not public.

The campaign's executive director says it's up to the elections board to decide which voter privacy protections should be upheld and which ones should be ignored.
