Denver: Agency loses voter records-Data For 150,000 at risk
Agency loses voter records
Sensitive data for 150,000 residents might be at risk

The Denver Election Commissioner has lost sensitive information for more than 150,000 voters - about 42 percent of those registered in the city - that could be exploited by identity thieves if it fell into the wrong hands.
What has some election commissioners fuming is that the filing cabinet containing the microfilm with voter registrations from 1989-1998 vanished during a February move to a new office building, but top officials say they only learned about it June 1.

And they heard about it from City Councilwoman Judy Montero, who demanded to know why an Internet blog was reporting "that confidential data about Denver voters has been compromised."

"We're taking this very seriously," commission spokesman Alton Dillard said Friday. "We're conducting a full investigation having to do both with trying to locate the information and to find out essentially who knew what when. We will get to the bottom of it."

1. I wonder....
Was this Democratic voter records :-)

Someone probably put them on the "to throw out list" during the move because they thought microfilm was an old technology and we have computers now. Check the city dump.
