The Utah Legislature is close to paranoid about voter fraud. And they want to keep voter registration records secret? Maybe they just want fraud in their favor without the prying eyes of the public ("Bill: Let Utahns keep their voter records private," Tribune, Feb. 12).

Take out the birthdate, and voter records are useless as anything but a mailing list (and a potential deterrent for voter fraud). Anyone who thinks his personal information is secret if not for this voter registration list should Google himself. Or look at what he's posted on Facebook.
