2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill, the "Voter Privacy Act," prohibits State and local entities from sharing the social security number, digitized signature, or New Jersey driver's license number or permit number of registered voters with the federal government. The provisions of this bill would apply to the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, created by Executive Order by President Trump in May of 2017. Additionally, the bill provides that social security numbers contained in a voting record maintained pursuant to Title 19 of the Revised Statutes may not be disclosed under the open public records act. Lastly, the bill prohibits the Secretary of State from conducting an automated program to remove the names of ineligible voters from the official lists of eligible voters pursuant to the "National Voter Registration Act of 1993." This practice is commonly referred to as purging voter rolls.
