Thousands of US voters personal details exposed online again form misconfigured Amazon S3 bucket and the data appears to be a part of Robocent, a Virginia-based political campaign, and robocalling company.

The exposed data contains personal data including Full Name, Phone numbers, Address, Political affiliation, Age and birth year, Gender, Jurisdiction breakdown and Demographics based on ethnicity, language, education.
