Five password-protected laptop computers that contained personal information of registered voters in Robeson County were discovered stolen in September.  Voters had their names, addresses, dates of birth, and the last four digits of their Social Security numbers exposed.  The computers went missing between July 18 and September 4. They were most likely taken while outside of their normally secured area and left with unsupervised community volunteers.  Driver's license numbers may have also been exposed.  Those who were affected were mailed letters on September 12.
