Here's the link with details: Data on nearly 600K Alaska voters exposed online | TheHill
So 600,000 means basically all of us. I'm signing up for this in the morning: https://www.zanderins.com/idtheft2

I'm not. I'm sick and tired of online scare tactics. This is nothing.

That was the first thing I thought... that's pretty much all of us.

FWIW, there's a perfectly legal website that has put the individual voter registration info for my state (and a few other states) online. It includes name, date of birth, address, telephone number (if voluntarily provided when the person registered), party affiliation, and voting history (just the dates). This is publicly available info, although what happened here appears to be a hack and involves more information, not normally included in voter registration such as number of children.

There aren't even 600,000 eligible voters in Alaska. Obviously the list needs to be purged and updated.

I was thinking the same thing. There's about 740,000 people total living in AK. Of that, 185,000 are under 18 and can't vote. Then there's adults who aren't registered, felons in jail, etc.

If some political action eager beaver wants to try using that information to nag me into a vote they are welcome to try....none of the phone calls, mailers, doorbell ringers, or poll takers have had much luck so far; recycle bins and dog whistles in the ear still work, but in a pinch there's always a load of bird shot.

The last peddlers to wander up to my house were chased off by some crazy girl toting a splitting maul. I don't know who would do such a thing.
