Don't be bullied on voter privacy
In response to reported unofficial door-to-door canvassing of Colorado voters, the Colorado Secretary of State’s office has issued the following reminders to voters:
Several pieces of information in a voter record are considered a "public record," and the Secretary of State’s office is required by law to provide this information to any member of the public who requests it. This information includes your full name, residential address, political 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. 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' registration information is NOT released to the public, nor is it obtainable through a download of the list of registered voters. To become a confidential voter, you must go to your local county clerk and recorder's office (679 Turner Drive for La Plata County residents), fill out a voter confidentiality form, and pay a $5.00 fee.
Survivors of domestic violence, sexual offenses, or stalking may also consider enrolling in the Colorado Address Confidentiality Program. Voters who are part of this program will NOT have any of their voter information released to the public.
