ecretary of State Michele Reagan plans to provide President Donald Trump’s commission on voter fraud with Arizona’s voter-registration information, with certain exceptions. But the request for information, which has already provoked pushback from elections officials in at least 27 other states, is not sitting well with the officials of Arizona’s two largest counties, who run their own, separate databases.
They are concerned because Kris Kobach, vice chairman of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, has told elections officials he will make the information public. They believe that is not allowed under Arizona law.
Reagan issued a statement on her Website Friday saying her office will provide information that is available to anyone in the general public, as the law and a recent settlement in a registration-database lawsuit permit.
