This entire commission is based on the specious and false notion that there was widespread voter fraud last November….At best this commission was set up as a pretext to validate Donald Trump’s alternative election facts, and at worst is a tool to commit large-scale voter suppression.
The Donald just can’t get over the fact that he lost the popular vote by over 3.5 million, and in order to suppress the votes of millions more in 2018 he created the “Election Integrity Commission”. The Commission recently asked states to fork over personal information on every voter which includes names, addresses, birthdates, political affiliation, last four digits of Social Security numbers, and voting history. To lead the commission, Trump appointed Kris Kobach, the Secretary of State for Kansas. Kobach has bragged that he is “the A.C.L.U.’s worst nightmare.” The ACLU has sued Kobach four times for voter suppression, which is exactly what the Election Integrity Commission was established to do. Cybersecurity experts have also called this a gold mine for hackers.
The good news is that, many red and blue states are refusing to comply, to varying degrees. States fall in the following four categories:
- Will not comply with data request.
- Only providing publicly available records.
- Stated that they have not received a request.
- Currently reviewing the request from the commission.
All-of-us must make sure our states refuse to comply with this attempt to invade our privacy and suppress our votes, and we must thank those that are refusing this request.
