Trump's Election Integrity Commission releases personal voter information

White House releases sensitive personal information of voters worried about their sensitive personal information

White House releases sensitive personal information of voters worried about their sensitive personal information

Shortly before the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity is set to have its first meeting on Wednesday July 19-which will be livestreamed here-the controversial committee published hundreds of pages from concerned citizens about the group's work.

Requested information included "dates of birth, political party (if recorded in your state), last four digits of social security number if available, voter history (elections voted in) from 2006 onward, active/inactive status, cancelled status, information regarding any felony convictions, information regarding voter registration in another state, information regarding military status, and overseas citizen information".

In all, 44 states have in part or in totality declined to provide the requested voter data. Why? "I have serious doubts about the commission's credibility and trustworthiness". Many states rejected the commission's request for detailed data on voters, with some noting that sharing pieces of the requested data would violate state law.

I, along with colleagues from across the nation, have grave concerns about the goal of this commission and how it will use any collected data.

Since the information became public, thousands of voters have unregistered.

When the Election Integrity Commission sought voter information, the majority of states declined from sharing such information and it led to a lot of bad press for the White House, as it was seeking information that could not be shared legally. The commission will look into the charges of illegal voting and will also address voter suppression and irregularities.

People from all over the country emailed the Commission, which was established after Trump proclaimed there was massive voter fraud during the 2016 election, complaining about the odd ask, not thinking that the government would retaliate.

In June, President Trump's commission on voter fraud to all 50 states and the District of Columbia demanding publicly available information about voters. Numerous comments were negative, although some contained suggestions of where the panel might uncover voter fraud.

Further, national security experts and former officials from both sides of the aisle have been clear that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election. It would be a much better use of taxpayer money to find answers to actual problems that election administration officials face, including consistent underfunding of elections, increased security demands, and creating as much opportunity as possible for every eligible voter to cast a ballot in every election.
