Voter Lists FAQ

What is the difference between Unique Address count and Unique Household count?

A Unique Address count returns a count of unique physical addresses matching your query regardless of the name of the individuals living at the addresses. A count of Unique Households returns a count where individuals sharing an address but not sharing a last name would be each be considered a Household. For Ex. a husband and wife living at the same address but not sharing the same last name would EACH be considered a Household.

How do you determine party preference in states without partisan registration?

We use a metric "inferred party".

In AR,GA,IL,IN,MS,SC,TN,TX, and VA:

Inferred Democrat voted Democrat in more primaries than voted Republican (between 2000 and 2014); Or no D or R primary vote history but has a Democrat or liberal donation , pro-choice flag, or is an affordable care act supporter. Anyone with an Republican or conservative donation, pro-life, or anti-affordable care act is excluded.

Inferred Republican -- Voted Republican in more primaries than voted Democrat (between 2000 and 2014) Or No Democrat or Republican primary vote history but has an Republican or conservative donation, pro-life flag, anti affordable care act flag, or 2nd amendment supporter flag. Anyone with a Democrat or liberal donation, pro-choice or pro-affordable care act flag is excluded Inferred Party in states with neither party code nor party by primary

In AL,HI,MI,MN,MO,MT,VT,WA,WI, and ND:

Inferred Republican has an Republican or conservative donation, pro-life flag, anti affordable care act flag, or 2nd amendment supporter flag. Anyone with a Democrat or liberal donation, pro-choice or pro-affordable care act flag is excluded.

How are voters marked as Dead?

All voter files are run against a database of government agency-reported individuals who are believed to be deceased.

Those who match on at least FIRSTNAME, LASTNAME and BIRTHDATE are excluded from the output. Although it's possible for us to mark someone as dead when they actually are not, the great benefit of this feature is that you will not be calling or mailing hundreds or thousands of voters who are very likely to be no longer with us.

Why are "movers" excluded?

Although the voter may still be registered at a given address, once it's indicated that they have moved from this address, the likelihood of his or her participation in an election is lowered. As with dead, it's possible that some of these records still represent valid voters in your selection. However, by omitting these records, you will not only be charged less for your selection, but you can save the expense of using phones and mail (or volunteer time) in a futile effort to contact thousands of voters who just aren't there anymore.

In addition to mailing labels, can I order Phone Lists and Walk Sheets?

Yes. Please contact us to order.

What are the State restrictions pertaining to the use of Voter data?

The state restrictions to the use of the data can be found on each State Summary page. You can access the State Summary page by clicking the link to the right of the State Selection Dropdown in VLO 2.0. All of our voter files are delivered to our users via a secure FTP download link There are 2 states-Pennsylvania and Arizona with more stringent protection in place. These state files are delivered via FTP link as well but are password protected. The information gained from Voterlistsonline.com is not to be considered a consumer report (as that term is defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act 15 U.S.C. sec 1681) and may not be used to determine a consumer's eligibility for credit or insurance for personal, family or household purposes, employment or a government license or benefit.
