LWV Statement on Kobach Request for Voter Records
League Opposes Kobach Request for Voter Records
On June 30, League of Women Voters of the U.S. president Chris Carson released a statement on Kris Kobach’s request for every state’s voter records and the Elections Integrity Commission.
“There is no justification for this giant fishing expedition. The Commission itself is a distraction from the real issue of voter suppression, and that efforts to ‘investigate voter fraud’ threaten our most fundamental voting rights…
“State laws govern the release of voter registration information, and, at a minimum, election officials must follow those laws before releasing data. The League stands with those state leaders who have already come out to support their voters and refuse these requests from Mr. Kobach and the EIC.”
