Does signing a ballot initiative put your identity at risk? Ballot initiatives seem to always be circulating and we are often asked to add our signature, so should we be concerned?
"When you sign on to a ballot initiative, you do not give any information that isn't in a telephone book and that is not enough to steal your identity," said consumer activist Jon Fox.
Fox is with CalPIRG and says he isn't aware of a single instance of identity theft was linked back to a ballot initiative. So don't let privacy concerns get in the way of practicing your constitutional rights.

You Can Help
We have a chance to cut billions in junk food subsidies this year. Your support will help us do the research, advocacy and grassroots organizing to convince our elected officials to act.
Each year, our tax dollars pay for enough junk food additives to buy 8.5 two-liter bottles of soda for each person under 18. Help stop the subsidies for junk food.
