Democratic leaders object to voter registration probe

Idaho Democratic Legislative Leadership is calling on Idaho Secretary of State Lawrence Denney to refuse a Trump administration demand for state voting records. The “Election Integrity Commission” demanded the full first and last names of all registrants, middle names or initials, addresses, dates of birth, political party, the last 4 digits of voters’ social security numbers, voter history from 2006 onward, current status and other background information. President Trump launched the “investigation” in an effort to prove he would have won a majority of presidential election votes if there had not been widespread voter fraud. The letter continued,”Importantly, the letter does not explain how this information will be used, what it will be used for, how it will be protected (if at all), or how long the Federal Government will maintain control over the personal information of hundreds of thousands of Idahoans….we find it unimaginable that the State of Idaho would willingly succumb to such a blatant Federal intrusion into our state’s right to control our own elections, protect our citizens’ voting rights and, most importantly, protect our citizens’ privacy from Federal investigators.” The letter encourages Denney to reject the demand and protect Idaho voters.
