“Major political parties operate sophisticated voter-tracking software without the consent of voters and their databases contain enormous amounts of personal information about all of us….

While our politicians might think it’s no big deal to build profiles of voters without their consent and without accountability and accuracy safeguards, the fact such databases are routinely consulted before appointments are made to government boards, for example, highlights another part of the problem: an effective hollowing out of the principle of the secret ballot.”
