The results of an internal investigation into how personal information, including social security numbers, drivers license numbers and dates of birth of Georgia’s 6.2 million registered voters, was accidentally distributed to a dozen news and political party organizations will not be released today as originally planned. According to a press release from Secretary of State Brian Kemp, the report on the data release will be available Monday afternoon.
The report will document the events and timeline leading up to the release. Among the information to be released are 5,000 emails related to the release, personnel files for relevant employees, communications with the Georgia Department of Revenue and PCC Technology Group, job descriptions, and more. Also included with the report will be plans for remedial action.
These documents will be available for public inspection following the release of the report. Persons wanting to view these documents or with questions regarding the data release can contact the Secretary of State’s office hotline at 404-654-6065.
The release of the report, originally set for Thursday, December 10th, has taken longer than expected. According to a representative of the Secretary of State’s office, employees are continuing to prepare the report and supporting background documents.
