Voter registration information is public record in Florida with a few exceptions. Information such as your social security number or driver’s license number cannot be released or disclosed to the public. Other information such as your name, address, date of birth, party affiliation, and when you voted is public information. This information can find its way onto the Internet or websites by individuals or entities that obtain public records from the State. A website may offer you the option to remove your information for a fee. Please be advised that it will only apply to that particular website.
For a more permanent option, you may ask that your voter registration information not be disclosed in any future public records request:
- If you are a participant in the Attorney General’s Address Confidentiality Program for victims of domestic violence and stalking. See section 97.0585(3) and sections 741.401-741.465, Florida Statutes. Contact the Attorney General’s Office’s Bureau of Advocacy and Grants Management at 850.414.3300 for instructions on how to become a participant.
- If you have asked each agency that may have information on you to not disclose information such as your address, photo, and date of birth. However, you must fall within one of the statutorily designated classes of high-risk professionals. Please refer to the Public Records Exemption Request form and follow instructions to submit the completed form to the Florida Department of State.
