Georgia will not share information, however, considered private under state law such as registered voters' driver's license numbers, Social Security numbers, phone numbers or email addresses.
The public file does not show party affiliation because voters in Georgia are not required to declare one. It does show, however, whether voters requested party-specific ballots during primary elections.
Civil rights groups including those in Georgia have raised alarms about sharing the data, saying they fear the collected information could be used to purge voting rolls and make it harder to register to vote.
“Our position is, and remains, that the collection of voter information on a national scale creates serious violations” of federal privacy laws passed in the wake of Watergate, said Sara Henderson, the executive director of Common Cause Georgia.
