Trump's Election Commission Is a Reunion for Controversial Bush Justice Division

  • Record electorate for snap election but some may have voted more than once

Its report stated: "Although people may lawfully be registered to vote in more than one place in certain circumstances, it is troubling that some voters appear to have admitted voting a few times at the general election, which is an offence".

Alabama Rep. Terri Sewell is one of two people tapped by the Democratic National Committee to fight what party officials are calling the White House's "voter suppression scheme".

Why was the commission created?

Trump ordered the formation of the commission after he claimed publicly, without any supporting evidence, that Hillary Clinton only won the popular vote a year ago thanks to millions of "illegal" votes.

Thousands more students than expected registered to vote in June's election, which produced a surge in the Labour vote across the country, the Electoral Commission says. How can we restore the Voting Rights Act and our nation's most powerful voter protections?

"What are they anxious about?" the President asked with a tone of skepticism.

There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in last year's election.

Trump convened the commission after alleging that voter fraud cost him the popular vote. The commission includes five former and current secretaries of state, Pence pointed out.

"This bipartisan group will perform a truly nonpartisan service to the American people", he said.

Nothing yet, but it's just getting started.

Numerous states that refused to fully comply with the controversial commission's request for a swath of information on voter profiles are barred by their state laws from doing so.

We showed more belief in our abilities and our mindset changed. "I certainly don't take any added pressure", he added. When asked about India's success in the recent past, Shastri says the team deserves all the credit.

Trump formed the panel, whose official name is the Commission on Election Integrity, in May through executive order to study "vulnerabilities" in the election system.

He pushed back at "unfair, unjust and unwarranted criticism" he and the commission has received.

We saw this in Texas where a court recently ruled that the Texas Republican legislature blatantly designed redistricting maps to exclude Hispanic voters.

So far, the group has requested that every state turn over extensive personal information on voters, the report says.

Many of them called it unwarranted and cited state laws that prevent them from sharing some of the data. That request has been put on hold for now because of a lawsuit. In 2002, Hans von Spakovsky, an outspoken proponent of voter ID requirements whom Trump appointed to his commission last month, became a top attorney there.

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, a Democrat, similarly declined, saying that to honor the commission's request "would only serve to legitimize the false and already debunked claims of massive voter fraud made by the president, the vice president and Mr. Kobach".
