Louisiana denies Trump's request for voter information

Louisiana denies Trump's request for voter information Louisiana denies Trump's request for voter information

Administrator of the Maryland State Board of Elections Linda Lamone said in a July 3 letter that sharing access to Maryland's voter registration lists and other information requested by the commission is prohibited by state law.

President Donald Trump's commission on voter fraud requested voter information from every state and D.C., and the District, Virginia, and Maryland are all saying "Hell no". That includes names, party affiliations, addresses and voting history, as well as dates of birth, the last four digits of voters' Social Security numbers and any information about felony convictions and military status. Trump received the most electoral college votes to win the race.

There remains no evidence that widespread voter fraud occurred in any state during the November 2016 election, but last Wednesday, the commission's work quickly became a matter of national importance.

At least eight largely Democratic states said they would not comply at all and at least 16 other states have informed the commission that they would not provide any sensitive data. Many political campaigns, for instance, obtain such information for purposes of advertising and door-knocking. Critics have complained that the panel is stacked with people who have long sought to make access to the polls more restrictive, including Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the panel's vice chairman, and former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell. The letter does not ask for private information, but rather public voter-roll information.

"People should know that voter lists in MI and across the country are public record under state law and have been for decades", Woodhams said Friday. "That's why it is protected by six federal laws and two state laws".

He was leaning towards me not even playing, ' he revealed. "Probably not at the moment". Never got it right. "I spoke to the doctor before the tournament started".

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

Trump launched the commission in May via an executive order.

"Michigan is rightly known as a state that encourages all eligible voters to have their voices heard on Election Day and one that voters can have full confidence in the accuracy and integrity of the results", Johnson said in a statement.

"If the secretary of state of MS can tell this commission and Trump to go jump in the gulf", Jealous said during a Monday news conference, "we should be telling them to take a flying leap off the Bay Bridge".
