Salem, Ore. – Oregon officials have been making money by selling voter information to political parties and private companies. The Statesman Journal newspaper reports that the office of the Oregon Secretary of State has made nearly $90,000 off fees during the past five years by selling the voter registration database. The voter registration database includes information such as each voter’s name, address, date of birth and voter history. It doesn’t show how anyone voted.
