Illinois Refuse to Give Information in Voter Fraud Investigation

Trump has falsely claimed that millions voted illegally in November, and, despite the fact that numerous previous credible investigative studies repeatedly found illegal voting to be extremely rare and voter fraud virtually nonexistent, this commission intends to "study the registration and voting processes used in Federal elections". "Each file includes voter names, last four digits of their Social Security Numbers, voting address, and voting history". Trump won the Electoral College vote and the presidency despite losing the popular vote by almost 2.9 million votes.

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner said the state would not fully comply with the President's voter fraud commission. The commission was created earlier this year by Trump to look into possible voter fraud in US elections.

Additionally, Maryland state officials also confirmed on Monday that they will not be providing any information to the commission.

Kris Kobach, the crusading Kansas secretary of state who serves as vice chair of Trump's commission (which is chaired by Vice President and former Indiana Gov. Mike Pence), should have known better.

S.C. Democratic Party Chairman Trav Robertson expressed dismay that McKissick would purchase state voter data on behalf of the White House.

In reality, most states have not refused the data request.

Eighteen states have publicly criticized the commission's request. "This agency is required to provide it under state law".

Trump has made repeated, unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud in the 2016 election.

Detzner replied in a letter to the commission Thursday. Chris Powell, a spokesman for the Secretary of States, told the Associated Press that the state wouldn't release driver's license numbers, felony convictions, military status, or Social Security numbers. A growing number of states are refusing or partially refusing to comply with the commission's requests. "Private information needs to remain private and I'm committed to making sure that we protect the privacy of the people of the state of Missouri". The only data the commission should be able to obtain is that which is available to any citizen. Methinks that I recall the public asking the same question in reference to his refusal to divulge his and his wife's IRS information. Canceling now will not prevent information already in the database from going to the commission. It includes whether you voted in the past and how many times you voted.

"It was created by the president, really, with the goal of perpetuating this myth of pervasive voter fraud", he said.
