Florida Department of State exposes voter information

2015/03/31

Softpedia - (Florida) The Florida Department of State reported March 31 that the Florida Division of Elections notified 45,173 individuals after 15 compact discs that stored their personal information were delivered to entities ordering them without redacting contact details of certain individuals who are exempt from having their personal information released to the public. Authorities do not believe any of the information will be misused and attributed the error to a malfunction in the automated software used to process record requests.
