Data Breach

On Saturday 30 June, the Tasmanian Electoral Commission was notified by Typeform that they had a data breach which affected some of the online forms used on the TEC website.  Typeform is a company used by the Commission to provide online forms.

It is believed that the information stolen as part of the breach included name, address, email, phone number and date of birth information provided by electors on some TEC forms.

All forms on the TEC website have now been closed.

The Electoral Commission will be contacting in the coming days each elector whose data may have been stolen to inform them of the breach.

The breach has no connection to the national or state electoral roll, or the secrecy or integrity of any elections conducted by the TEC.
