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 to keep address information confidential for people who are under physical threat.

Check your state website or contact your local election official to find out more. Go to our
Election Official Directory 
and choose your state and voting region. On the following page click the tab labeled "Address Information" for a website address, and “Election Official Contact Details" for contact information.
