Personal information easy for anyone to see on new voter registration site

By  | 

FLINT (WJRT) - (10/13/16) - All of your personal information at the click of a button.

It's public record, but a company is making it very easy to get your address, email - even what political party you support.

The web site is www.voterrecords.com and is one-stop shopping for anyone to look up your information.

All you have to do is type in your name to see if your records are searchable on the site.

Michigan voters don't get the option to register for a specific party, but other states do - which means that information could be available on this site.

If you want to reduce some of the information for your profile on the site, follow the steps below:

- Click the link attached to this page (www.voterrecords.com)

- Select 'Michigan' and type in your first and last name

- If your name comes up, click on your profile and scroll to the bottom of the screen

- Click on the "opt-out" link and follow the prompts from there

According to the website, "Once you have done this, data such as: house number, phone, and email address should no longer appear on this site. Make sure to refresh the page and clear your browser cache if you are still seeing the data after you have completed these steps."
