Denver7: A website that has compiled public records on Colorado voters is protecting its own identity from the public.
ColoradoResidentdb.com shows the name, address, voter affiliation, age and in some cases phone numbers, for all Colorado voters.
Denver7 took the website to voters in Downtown Denver to find out what they thought of what was accessible.
After Joelle Morrison gave us the spelling of her name, we found her record.
After finding a map, her age and landline phone number, Morrison had enough.
“Should I know this stuff about you?” asked Zelinger.
“No,” she said. “Yeah, that’s kind of scary. Way too much. Way too much. I have kids. Yeah, it’s way too much.”
“If I start spouting personal information, is that going to bother you?” Zelinger asked voter Lisa Nguyen.
“No, that’s fine. It’s like searchable, public record stuff,” Nguyen said.
A search of Nguyen’s name found 10 records. One of those gave us her Centennial address, age, but no phone number because she didn’t include that on her voter registration.
“I work in an industry where I kind of am a data-miner, so I’m personally OK with it,” said Nguyen.
While all the information is publicly accessible through the Secretary of State’s Office, whoever is behind the website has gone out of their way to block you from knowing them.
