Voter Privacy Act Unlikely to Affect 2020 U.S. Presidential Race

Global Data Review

Although the proposed Voter Privacy Act might not affect the upcoming presidential elections, it could give voters control over how their personal data is used by political campaigns. 

Senator Dianne Feinstein put the bill forward last week, which includes provisions that are designed to end the practice of campaigns using private data to "manipulate and mislead voters." 

“I think the bill is an important step forward to focus consumers on how their data is used for political purposes,” said Senior Policy Advisor Norma Krayem.
