Press Statement: Statement on Trump Election Commission Request for Voters’ Personal Information


Media contact:

Earlier this week, Kris Kobach, the Vice Chair of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity sent letters to all 50 states, including Georgia, requesting a list of all registered voters, the last four digits of their social security numbers, their addresses, dates of birth, political affiliation, their voting history, as well as other information.

Sean J. Young, ACLU of Georgia legal director, issued this statement:

“The threatened disclosure of private, confidential information should concern voters of all political parties. We call on the Georgia Secretary of State to fight – tooth and nail – to protect Georgians from this faux commission’s attempts to disclose the private and confidential information of Georgia voters. Rather than wasting precious taxpayer dollars on cooperating with this sinister scheme, Georgia should focus on making sure that more people are able to participate in our democracy, not fewer.
