  • Voting Commission

The commission has asked all 50 states to provide them with voter names, parts of Social Security numbers, party identifications if possible, and voting histories.

SC election officials have received a formal request for voter information from the presidential commission investigating voter fraud.

That said, if the commission files the appropriate paperwork, they're entitled to any information that is already publicly available, in accordance with state law.

In a statement Friday, Secretary of State Tre Hargett said he appreciates the commission's goal to address election issues, including voter fraud.

State law also says a Maryland voter must submit to the State Board of Elections a statement signed under oath that the requested voter information will not be used for purposes unrelated to the electoral process.

The commission asked for voters' last four digits.

The commission is the result of an executive order signed by Trump in May, with Vice President Mike Pence as chairman and Kobach, a controversial politician who has overseen the implementation of some of the nation's harshest voting laws. Officials on the panel said they planned to compare the state records to databases of undocumented immigrants and legal foreigners in order to determine if large numbers of unqualified voters are participating in US elections.

He says the information is often requested by political candidates and those creating ballot measures.

A spokesperson for Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan told KTAR in an email she has not received the commission's letter. "Accordingly, I am denying your request".

Trump's national commission was formed to investigate allegations of USA election fraud.

This request has drawn wide criticism from privacy and security experts who claim that the insecure collection and aggregation of such data is a threat to voters.

Former NAACP President Ben Jealous, who is seeking the Democratic nomination in the 2018 gubernatorial race, held a news conference Monday morning calling for the state board of elections to refuse to cooperate with the election integrity commission. The only reason why the administration would want sensitive personal information on voters was so that they could carry out a voter purge. "But rest assured, we will not be releasing any of the voter information that we have that identifies anybody". Studies have shown that statistically, vote fraud is close to non-existent.
