Denney considering demand for voter information

Idaho Secretary of State Lawrence Denney says he is reviewing the Trump Administration’s request for Idaho voter information. “While a request for voter information itself is not atypical, and while specific parts of the state voter roll are in fact public, this particular request was of a unique enough nature that it bears some additional review,” said Denney. Denney said some of the information requested is not available to the public including voters’ date of birth, last four social security numbers, and no actual voter history. Denney said he had until July 14 to make a final decision on what information to provide and to review an appropriate and legal response. Secretary Denney concluded, “In the end, I will look to fulfill the requirements of the law under Idaho Statute while continuing to protect both the Idaho Voter, their non-public, personal information, and their right to an absolutely private ballot under Article VI, section 1 of the Idaho Constitution.” Here is Denney’s full statement.
