Most of us in Alaska are completely unaware that when we registered to vote our personal information was entered into a database the state of Alaska sells to any interested party. Information included in the file includes all voters’ first, middle, and last name, address, party affiliation, method of voting, date of voting, and voting location.
This information of ours is gathered and sold by the State is to ensure politicians, political parties, and special interests can better target us with phone calls, bulk mail, and other campaign activities.
Is that enough to warrant this government data collection and distribution of our personal data?
Judge for yourself.
