President Trump’s commission investigating alleged voter fraud during the 2016 election is asking states for a list of the names, party affiliations, addresses, and voting histories of all voters, if state law allows it to be public, the AP reports. A letter sent Wednesday from the American Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity asks secretaries of state to provide about a numerous points of voter data and respond to queries about fraud and election credibility. Donald Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton but has alleged, that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally.
On Thursday, Democratic officials in California and Virginia said they will not conform because the letter is based on false notions of widespread voter fraud. Missouri’s Republican secretary of state says he is happy to assist.
