Submission + - Millions of Voters Private Data Given Away

WebHostingGuy writes: "As reported by MSNBC, voters in Chicago have had their private information (date of birth, SSN, address, etc.) given away by the Chicago Board of Elections. Apparently, the Chicago Board of Elections gave out over 100 CDs with private voter information in 2003 to campaigns. Moreover, at least six other discs have been released since 2003 containing more SSNs and it is believed that this private information is stored all over computers around the city."
