Vice President Pence’s Office Plans to Control Voter Roll Data

HeadlineJul 07, 2017
H08

The Trump administration told a federal judge Thursday it plans to keep voter roll data it has requested from all 50 states on White House computers controlled by Vice President Mike Pence. The disclosure came after the Electronic Privacy Information Center sued to halt the requests for voter data made by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach as part of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. Kobach’s request would gather the names, addresses, birthdates, Social Security numbers, party affiliations and felony conviction records of virtually all U.S. voters. Critics say the White House plans to use the data for large-scale voter suppression, and at least 44 states have said they will not fully comply with Kobach’s request.
