Maryland will not forward voter data to Trump's voter integrity commission

Connecticut to limit voter information it sends to federal panel

The requested information includes full names, addresses, birth dates, political party and, most notably, the last four digits of Social Security numbers.

Several states, including neighboring MS, have refused to comply with the voter information request, citing privacy concerns. She says some basic voter information has been public for decades, including registrations and election participation history.

Gov. Henry McMaster, an early supporter of Trump's Republican presidential bid a year ago, believes the state should share voter information that is publicly available, his spokesman Brian Symmes said. State law doesn't contain any provisions for waiving the fee, he said.

The most notable response against the Trump election fraud probe came from Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican, who told the commission, "They can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico". 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". "What are they trying to hide?"

Kobach "appears to be using his official role as head of the so-called Election Integrity Commission to promote his candidacy for governor of Kansas", Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said in a statement announcing the filings.

And Frosh was clear on that subject as well: "There is no evidence that the integrity of the 2016 election in Maryland - or any other state - was compromised by voter fraud". Kobach made the requests in letters to all 50 states.

However, some of the nation's most populous states, including California and NY, are refusing to comply.

Jealous used the issue as an opportunity to accuse Republican Gov. Some of the data the Trump commission has requested is publicly available, but the president's commission will have to purchase it from Louisiana like political parties do if it wants to review it, according to Schedler's office.
