Yeah, this comission doesn't even oass the smell test well enough for R states to jump in.

To my knowledge, no state has complied or announced they will comply with the request in full due to the amount of personal information requested.

Of course, this feeds the administration's inevitable claim that they're all hiding something. Which will be immensely laughable given Kobach's "success" at rooting out voter fraud in Kansas (maybe a dozen actual cases out of 1.5 million registered voters).

Minnesota secretary of state won't supply voter information to Trump's panel

Voting history back to 2006? What voting history does the state have?

Good catch. I know the state can determine what you are registered as and for how long and if any changes have been made but not sure exactly how they expect to get that information from the state.

Have the ACLU filed suit to try to stop this yet, or do you think it will take them until Monday?

They should probably start by asking the person who made the snap claim of 3M illegal votes for evidence.

Seems easier than shaking down states for personal information of citizens.

We need to know how people have voted in the past but tax returns are PRIVATE information!!!

In AZ, the following are public record:
Name
Party affiliation
Address
Voting frequency (ballots are anonymous so who you voted for can't be determined)

Typically, this information is available on request and is normally used by political campaigns for targeted outreach.

Social security numbers and birthdays are not part of the public record.

Our governor has said he will provide the public information and not the private.

Regardless, what Trump is doing is exactly what you would do if you wanted to engage in a nationwide voter suppression campaign. Considering there is no proof of widespread voter fraud and republican reputation for suppression it's hard not to see this in the worst possible light.

They'll certainly know whether or not you voted.

In Connecticut there's a lot of public information. If you have my name you can get my address, my birth date, the last time I registered and in what party, what elections I voted in, and what polling station.

Reality Check: This entire investigation is based solely on Donald Trump's paranoid delusion (i.e. deliberate mendacity).
