PEWAUKEE, Wis. (2/14/08)--Credit union members should avoid using their account statements as identification when voting, said the Wisconsin Credit Union League. “You’re better off using a state identification, utility bill or some other permitted document,” said Brett Thompson, league president/CEO. “It’s just safer to limit your exposure with sensitive information.” Using an account statement could increase the chances of identity theft. Some voters are tempted to use account statements if a current address is not reflected on their driver’s license, the league said. “It’s an unnecessary risk to allow anyone to see your account number,” Thompson said. He advised consumers to be cautious, whether registering with a municipal clerk or as part of local voter registration drives.
