The skinny on NC and Trump's request for election data

Florida officials say they are considering a request for voter information from President Donald Trump's commission investigating alleged voter fraud in the 2016 election. Trump over the weekend asked in a tweet what they had to hide. "My response to the Commission is, you're not going to play politics with Louisiana's voter data, and if you are, then you can purchase the limited public information available by law, to any candidate running for office".

"I see some problems with the request, if it's identical to what was sent to other states", Menzel said.

A number of other states are also refusing to hand over voter information. Powell said of a Washington Post article that listed Arkansas among states that would "partially" comply: "Apparently, the Washington Post is drawing its own conclusions, as we have not spoken with them".

Birth years are fair game, but Johnson says MI law puts a shield on Social Security numbers and driver's license numbers.

More than 20 states, including Kentucky, California and NY, have declined to provide some or all of the information, saying it was unnecessary and violated privacy.

The White House said Monday that all 50 states were contacted by the commission.

North Carolina officials said in a statement that they'll comply only with requests for public information and won't turn over partial Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers or dates of birth, which are confidential under certain state or federal laws.

Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe has said there is no evidence of significant voter fraud in the state. "[And] I think that the request itself is a form of voter suppression".

"Maine citizens can be confident that our office will not release any data that is protected under ME law, to the commission or any other requesting entity", Dunlap said in a statement. "This entire commission is based on the specious and false notion that there was widespread voter fraud last November".

Other critics say the ultimate aim of the voter fraud commission is to convince Congress to rescind all or part of the 1993 National Voter Registration Act, which made it easier for Americans to register to vote and to maintain their voter registration.

Frosh also said he finds the request repugnant and it is an effort to indulge Trump's "fantasy" that he won the popular vote.
