Minnesota’s Secretary of State Refusing Request from White House to Give Up Voter Information

Simon says the commission may make personal data, such as social security numbers and voting history, public.

 

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota election officials say they are not giving up state voting data to President Trump’s White House commission studying voter fraud.

Secretary of State Steve Simon says he has serious doubts about the credibility and trustworthiness of the commission.

The commission is asking state voting officials to submit the names of their voters, addresses, dates of birth, recent voting history and details about military status and felony convictions.

Simon says the commission may make personal data, such as social security numbers and voting history, public.
