Americans for Limited Government (ALG) recently sent out mailers to targeted neighborhoods around the country listing residents, and their neighbors, voting histories.
Questions of the ethics of sharing voter histories with neighbors without a resident's permission aside, some of the information provided by ALG wasn't even correct.
Warren resident Victor Vierra saw a mailer he was listed on and, according to him, information provided was incorrect.
Vierra said, despite information the mailer may have contained, he voted in a different state in 2004.
"As far as I know, all that information is incorrect," Vierra said. "I found it misleading."
Vierra also said he took issue with the tactic of sharing voter information with neighbors in general.
"I found it intimidating," Vierra said.
While Vierra said he does care if people vote, he doesn't feel the information should be shared.
"I care if they vote," Vierra said of people voting in general. And, as for his neighbors' voting histories, "It's none of my business."
In response to questions about the mailers, ALG cited a generic statement, which an internet search showed had been sent to media outlets across the country.
"Using publicly available information, we have been able to identify voters who have a tendency to vote but for whatever reason have failed to do so at the most critical moments. We unapologetically urge these voters to exercise their right to vote, a goal which we are confident everyone applauds," the statement said. "The data came from a contractor's compilation of publicly available voter records, and inevitably an extremely small percentage had entry errors. It was in our interest to have 100 percent of the data correct."
