Trump blasts states for not giving up data

"We do not feel like there is any evidence whatsoever of mass voter fraud in the state of Utah", said Cox.

The Louisiana Democratic Party said political groups and other entities typically pay $5,000 for that information.

The State Board does not provide Social Security numbers, dates of birth or driver license numbers, which are confidential under certain state and federal laws.

The Commission limited its June 28 request to "publicly available voter roll data". "Its request for voter information, such as social security numbers, serves no legitimate goal and only raises questions on its intent".

Ruth Johnson posted a response on Facebook on Monday, five days after the commission said it was asking states for information, including partial Social Security numbers and dates of birth.

Officials in 10 states and the District of Columbia said they would not comply at all with the request. Over the weekend on Twitter, Trump asked states refusing to submit data, "What are they trying to hide?" Those states are California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, South Dakota, Tennessee and Virginia.

But a comprehensive review of MI voting data by the conservative Anderson Economic Group revealed no widespread voter fraud, a point Johnson has repeatedly echoed.

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

Maryland will not comply with a request from President Trump's voter integrity commission to supply data on the state's registered voters.

"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. "No more, no less", said McMaster spokesman Brian Symmes. It indicates when a voter has cast a ballot in previous election cycles, but not how the person voted.

President Trump created the Election Integrity Commission at the beginning of his term to investigate what he alleged was widespread voter fraud in the presidential election - costing him the popular vote.

The Secretaries of State aren't dumb.

Hasen said that whether the commission gets the requested data or not, he expects it to conclude that voter fraud is a huge problem which needs to be addressed by laws tightening identification requirements and restricting voter registration methods.
