Louisiana Will Not Turn Over Voter Info to Trump Administration

Stock Clancy Commentary Graphic

Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson is expected to at least partly comply with a request for detailed state voter data from President Donald Trump's Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which is investigating alleged voter fraud in the 2016 election. "What are they trying to hide?" In addition to the voter information, the letter asks state officials for suggestions on improving election integrity and to share any evidence of fraud and election-related crimes in their states.

The office of Gov. Henry McMaster said the election commission should comply with the request as far as it is legally able to. Going all the way back to 1860, and the election of Abraham Lincoln, Republican state officials have engaged in efforts aimed at decreasing the ability of younger voters, Black Americans, Latinos, and other Americans more likely to vote for Democrats from exercising their right to vote. "Its request for voter information, such as social security numbers, serves no legitimate goal and only raises questions on its intent".

MI will treat the request from the Trump commission "just like any other Freedom of Information Act request", department spokesman Fred Woodhams said Monday, noting the state will charge $23 for the data, just as it does for "routine" requests by political parties, candidates and news organizations. When I mentioned to Powell that several states had rejected the idea without having formally received the letter, said: "We don't feel that that is prudent".

The state does not collect any data about a voter's political preference or gender, he said.

On Friday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the refusal by state officials to comply was "mostly a political stunt" and that the commission is asking for publicly available data. "[And] I think that the request itself is a form of voter suppression".

"NY refuses to perpetuate the myth voter fraud played a role in our election", tweeted Andrew Cuomo, Democratic governor of New York. There is no other plausible use for this type of information. Voter history indicates voters' participation in previous election cycles, NOT how they voted.

"The State Board will provide to the Commission publicly available data as already required under state law", said Kim Westbrook Strach, executive director of the Bipartisan State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement.
