In today’s online age, the security of voter privacy has never been more critical. With the rise of cyber threats and rapid technological advancements, the vulnerability of voter data has become a pressing issue. The decentralized and outdated nature of the U.S. electoral system only adds to this risk, exposing voter information to potential misuse and exploitation.
While the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) has made significant strides in electoral reform, it fails to address the modern challenges of protecting voter data against commercial misuse. The current state of affairs underscores a glaring gap in our legislative protections, highlighting the urgent need for an update to keep pace with evolving cyber threats.
Imagine a legislative framework that not only strengthens voter data security but also empowers you with the choice to prevent your data from being used commercially.
My proposed United States Voter Privacy Protection and Online Registration Act of 2025 is designed to do precisely that. By establishing the National Voter Data Protection Registry, this Act aims to safeguard your personal information, ensuring your right to privacy is respected and protected.
It’s time to support my initiative, the United States Voter Privacy Protection and Online Registration Act of 2025. It will update our legislative framework to protect voter privacy, reinforce the democratic process, and restore public trust in the electoral system.
By backing the United States Voter Privacy Protection and Online Registration Act of 2025, we can make a significant leap toward securing voter data and ensuring a more secure and trustworthy electoral process for all.
