Voter Help Desk
Is the information I provide when I register to vote kept confidential by my election office and state?

Some of the information provided on your registration form may be made available to candidates and political parties. In some states, information is made available to other groups as well.

States have varying rules about how voter registration data may be used, what information may be used, and by whom. Many states have special provisions for people who are under physical threat that will keep addresses confidential.

Check your state website or contact your local election official to find out more. Go to the Election Official Directory and choose your state and voting region – click on the tab labeled “Election Official Contact Details” for contact information, and “State Lookup Tools” for website information.
