Kansas not sharing sensitive voter data it seeks from others

Kansas not sharing sensitive voter data it seeks from others”

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity sent a letter to the secretaries of state this week requesting a list of the names, party affiliations, addresses and voting histories of all voters, if state law allows it to be public. But she also criticized Kobach's track record and expressed concern in an ulterior motive.

"We want to know how they are using the information they are collecting". He said: "NY refuses to perpetuate the myth that voter fraud played a role in our election".

And if the sensitive personal data is protected under the laws of her state then she shouldn't release it.

Mark Warbis, a spokesman for Gov. C.L.

What Inslee fails to address is the fact that in order for his compliance to "further the president's unfounded claims about voter fraud", the investigation would have to actually uncover something. Repeated academic and state studies of voter files show that only a handful of improper votes were cast in recent elections. The White House says the commission is aimed at preventing voter fraud. The claims of massive voter fraud usually raise the specter of voting by dead people, felons and immigrants. "Based on the President's comments and behavior and his choice of Kris Kobach - who has earned significant criticism and notoriety for his endless attempts to disenfranchise voters - as the vice chair, I do not trust this commission to examine voting issues in a thorough, legitimate manner".

Instead, Trump's voter fraud commission has one objective, represented even in its name: the Commission on Election Integrity. "We will not comply with this request".

Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dismissed the refusals as a "political stunt". No state election official planned to provide the commission with all of the information requested.

Mr. Kobach's letter asked for such information if it was publicly available under the law. Even Kansas, where Kobach is secretary of state, won't be handing over all the requested data for now, because Social Security numbers aren't publicly avaialble.

The Election Integrity Commission is trying to find out how much illegal voting goes on. "The confidential information, such as the last four digits of a voter's Social Security number or their OH driver license number, is not publicly available and will not be provided to the Commission".

I believe Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann offered an excellent template for a response to the administration's request, though I'd strongly suggest they jump in Lake Washington. Secretary Kobach serves as vice chairman on the commission, of which Secretary Dunlap is also a member.

"In Kansas, the Social Security number is not publicly available". Additionally, data made available to requesters may not be used for solicitation or for purposes other than their own activities and may not be redistributed.

But both red and blue states are saying the request is unnecessary and unwarranted.

The statement did not specify what records, if any, the State of Alaska plans to turn over to the federal commission.

Led by Vice President Mike Pence, the commission is scheduled to meet for the first time this month.

Kobach also boasts of having obtained voter fraud convictions in Kansas. Opponents say those laws hinder access to the polls primarily for elderly and minority voters. I can assure you that our state won't share any information that isn't already accessible to the public.

The commission will produce a report that will be provided to the president sometime next year.

Trump appointed another voter identification supporter, Heritage Foundation fellow Hans von Spakovsky, to the commission Thursday.

Those states are California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, South Dakota, Tennessee and Virginia.

The state Board of Elections has a regular monthly meeting at 10:30 a.m. Monday in person in Springfield and via a teleconference at the Thompson Center in the Loop.
