In plaintiff's class action lawsuit against the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners (Board) alleging violation of the Driver's Privacy Protection Act (DPPA), dismissal of the complaint is affirmed as, since a voter registration form filled out at the DMV is not a motor vehicle record under the DPPA, the Board could not have violated the DPPA by disclosing plaintiff's personal information to the extent that it did.
