Maryland AG issues statement on request for information on voters

Maryland AG issues statement on request for information on voters

"It is common for political parties and candidates to obtain voter info.", he said.

"In order for the Commission to fully analyze vulnerabilities and issues related to voter registration and voting, I am requesting that you provide to the Commission the publicly-available voter roll data for Maryland", Kobach wrote in the letter.

The spokesman said the commission has data from every voter in all 46 counties, but that data does not contain information such as party ID and voting history. State statutes permit the WEC to share confidential information in limited circumstances with law enforcement agencies or agencies of other states.

Ironically, the commission's request also asked how it can "support state and local election administrators with regard to information technology security and vulnerabilities". Over the weekend on Twitter, Trump asked states refusing to submit data, "What are they trying to hide?"

But many secretaries of state appeared to view the request differently.

With Donald Trump or with Arkansas voters?

Rivals Hamilton, Vettel clash as Ricciardo wins chaotic race
Asked if he expected Vettel to apologise, Hamilton said: "I don't fancy seeing him". "I didn't run into the back of him on goal ". He s done something similar in China at the restart a couple of years ago so it s not the way to do it, I think.

"This commission was formed to try to find basis for the lie that Mr Trump put forward that has no foundation", Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes told Reuters previously in an interview.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, said in a statement that he has "no intention of honoring this request", and questioned the panel's motives.

SC finally received a request for voter data from the White House commission examining Donald Trump's allegations of voter fraud in the 2016 election.

"The bigger the purse, the more effort folks would spend to get at it", said Joe Hall, chief technologist at the Center for Democracy and Technology, a digital advocacy group.

The Secretaries of State aren't dumb. "He's handing them both a legal and a political problem of significant proportions".

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. "And the request. does not include any indication of how the data will be used, let alone the required statement of intent under Maryland law".
