Iowa election official says he'll share public voter data
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) —
Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate says he'll share some information requested by President Donald Trump's commission investigating alleged voter fraud during the 2016 election.
Pate says in a statement released Friday he'll only provide voter registration information that is public record, and do so if a formal request is made that complies with state law.
The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity sent a letter Wednesday asking secretaries of state for about a dozen points of voter data and questions about fraud and election integrity. The request included asking for the last four digits of voters' Social Security numbers.
Pate, a Republican, says in his statement he won't provide personal voter information like Social Security numbers because it's forbidden under state law.
