The Hill has communicated that "Security bloggers and researchers claim to have uncovered a publicly available database exposing the personal information of 191 million voters on the Internet.

The information contains voters’ names, home addresses, voter IDs, phone numbers and date of birth, as well as political affiliations and a detailed voting history since 2000."

In many states, this information is a matter of public record. However there are several states such as South Dakota that require confirmation of those who are using the information to consent that they will not use or sell the information for commercial purposes or placed on the Internet for anyone to access.

Currently, no company has claimed the database so it is unclear who the information belongs to or how the information was put up on the Internet. As more information is discovered, we will update as appropriate.
