    Why does the public need to know when you last voted and what your political party is?

    Kobach Election Integrity Commission is requesting state's full voter-roll data, including the name, address, date of birth, party affiliation, last four Social Security number digits and voting history back to 2006. Kris Kobach said that “any documents that are submitted to the full Commission will also be made available to the public.”  Do you want potential Identity fraudsters to be able to see this information?

    This "election integrity commission" is nothing more than an excuse to institute voter suppression laws. They're collecting data they don't need, because no matter what they receive, they're going to announce massive voter fraud, as a justification to institute a bunch of laws that will make it harder for working people to vote.

      I was trying to avoid the assumption that comes with saying "harder for poor people to vote": that poor and working aren't the same thing.

    My concern about the request is that it steps into the constitutional role each state has in running elections and maintaining their integrity.  Again, it's a case of federal over reach.

    Why are  we helping the Russians? Russia hacked voter rolls for microtargeting. This effort is not  for for the declared reason of election fraud.   Data-mining is how Colluder Trump won.

    Robert Mercer is a major shareholder of  Cambridge Analytica & Steve Bannon, used to sit on its board. Trump campaign paid £5m to the company to help it target swing voters.

    Who is allowed to obtain the voter file? Some states have use restrictions that apply to specific persons or organizations, such as whether or not a person is a member of the general public or a registered voter within the state. - http://voterlist.electproject.org

    '.. disclosure of unredacted voter registration data online may be legal, but raise ethical questions that merit public debate and reform. .. why this action was in the public interest, particularly publishing data beyond the names required by statute. .. A full voter file could also be used in negative ways, as a backbone of knowledge to identify individuals when combined with other datasets, or to target individuals in their homes on the basis of their party affiliations - https://sunlightfoundation.com/2016/06/ … nsparency/

    'voter data becoming freely available, alarming privacy experts who say the information can be used for phishing attacks, identity theft and extortion.  The data that was released was already publicly available. But having it compiled in one place makes it particularly valuable. “Simply by digitizing the data, collecting it in one place, making it freely available in one place — it’s a Christmas gift for thieves,” said Neal O’Farrell, the executive director of the Identity Theft Council. - https://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/31/us/p … cerns.html

    They don't need to know, they want to know to deter some from voting, those who they deem unlikely to vote in the interests of a specific party.

      I am in just a kind of state (California) that would let this happen. I am a freak voter. All over the place and hating most all politicians. Susan Davis is my great. States rights first.

      Eric: Maybe you may like the  book  "The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution" about how USSC began usurping states rights almost from the start.  good book State as in Country, like EU has country/states.
