New law allows domestic violence survivors to keep voting records private

A new bill sponsored by Assemblywoman Nily Rozic and Senator Zellnor Myrie will allow survivors of domestic violence to vote without worrying about their personal information being available.

By signing an affidavit they can keep their voter records private.

Some residents opt out of voting altogether out of fear of  their abuser finding them. By keeping the details confidential, they may cast their vote free of worry.


Voter’s information may be verified but their details, like residence, will be kept confidential.

There is an election law similar to this, that allows a written statement that swears they have been a victim of domestic abuse so they require a special ballot.
