voting related ? - is this invasion of privacy?

So around 7pm I got a call from our local republican party office (DH & I are both registered repubilcan just in case we ever wanted to work in local gov't) saying "We know you voted, just wondering when your husband would be coming out to vote."

Isn't this an invasion of my privacy? Or is the fact that you voted a part of the public record? Just seems wrong to me. Chat Icon

It might be public record - but that would still bother me too. Chat Icon

Thanks. I guess it just bothers me that they were able to find out so fast that I'd voted. I could understand if they get a list a few weeks after or something, but the same day seemed weird to me. I guess Big Brother is always watching!

It's a matter of public record that you voted.

Even though it's public record, that would bug me. My phone didn't stop ringing all day and night yesterday with all the "vote for so-and-so" calls...I just didn't answer.

there is a lot of information that is public but it still doesn't give one the right to call one's home and ask such questions. the right to vote is a choice, we SHOULD vote but we don't HAVE to vote. i think it is completely unacceptable for one to use this information for such purposes as harrassing (used loosely) in the privacy of one's own home.
