Rep. Camillo advocates for voter identity protection

State Rep. Fred Camillo (R-151) has proposed a bill that would prohibit disclosure of a voter’s birth date information from the public.

The bill, “An Act Prohibiting Disclosure of Date of Birth Information on Voter Records” would prohibit disclosure to the public or to any public agency of an elector’s date of birth contained on any record of the registrars of voters in a municipality. The purpose is to protect voters from identity theft.

“In an era where identity theft is prevalent, one of the pieces of information that is needed to steal one’s identity is a date of birth. In this day and age, we must not only combat this pervasive criminal activity, we must ensure that our voters are not put in this vulnerable spot. Hence, prohibiting the release of a voter’s date of birth will make it less likely for a criminal to find success when attempting to steal a voter’s identity due to public disclosure of such records,” said Rep. Camillo.

Camillo presented testimony for the bill before the Government Administration and Elections (GAE) Committee on Monday, March 14. In the coming weeks, the GAE Committee will choose whether or not to advance the bill.
