I need to pull all of the birthdate records in a table which have a month of January and a day of 1 no matter what year.    When I use the where clause as AND (voters.date_of_birth like To_date ('01/01','MM/DD')) it only pulls records for 1913.  Can anyone help with this?

If you have an index on date_of_birth this will ignore it but:
where to_char(voters.date_of_birth,'MMDD') = '0101';

Since you are looking for 1/1, you can use trunc

where date_of_birth = trunc(date_of_birth, 'yyyy')

Of course, that only works with 1/1.

where mod(months_between(trunc(sysdate,'yyyy'),date_of_birth),12) = 0
