Open Records Decision No. 678
Re:   Whether the confidentiality
afforded  to  certain  identifying
information by section 552.1175 ofthe
Government Code endures when a
county voter registrar transfers the
information to the Secretary of State
and other authorized recipients
(ORQ-62).

Dear Secretary Shea:
You ask several questions concerning the permissible disclosure of voter registration
information about a peace officer. You explain that a peace officer notified a county voter
registrar that the officer chooses to restrict public access to certain personal information. The
officer notified the registrar pursuant to a provision in the Public Information Act
(the Act), section 552.1175 of the Government Code.
Section 552.1175 reads as follows:
(a) This section applies only to:
(1) peace officers as defined by Article 2.12, Code of
Criminal Procedure;
(2) county jailers as defined by Section 1701.001,
Occupations Code;
(3) employees of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice;
and

(4) commissioned security officers as
Section 1702.002, Occupations Code.
