It happened in April but we are just finding out about it today; the theft of personal data about 2.4 million voters in 20 to 25 electoral districts .
Greg Essensa is Ontario’s chief electoral officer.
He says the information is on computer flash drives that are very difficult for the average person to read.
The information includes names, addresses, genders, birth dates and whether or not an elector voted in the last election.
Essensa says the OPP have been called in to investigate the breach and the two employees responsible for security have been let go while a search continues for the USB Keys.
