Colorado providing voter rolls to U.S. fraud panel
Colorado’s secretary of state is sending voter registration rolls to a presidential panel that’s looking at alleged voter fraud.
Wayne Williams’ spokeswoman Julia Sunny says the information is being sent to the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity by close of business Monday.
Critics cite President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that millions voted fraudulently in last year’s presidential election. Democrat Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.
Williams emphasizes that any citizen can get the voter rolls.
The information includes whether registered voters cast ballots in previous years, names, mailing addresses, year of birth, political party affiliation and whether a voter is active or inactive.
It doesn’t include how anyone voted, driver’s license numbers, Social Security numbers, full dates of birth or voter signatures on file.
One-tenth of 1 percent of Colorado’s 3.7 million registered voters withdrew their registrations after the commission requested voter rolls in June.
