Presidential commission asks states to postpone sending voter data

DENVER, July 10, 2017 -- Today Secretary of State Wayne Williams and other election officials across the nation received the following email from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity:

Dear Election Official,

As you may know, the Electronic Privacy Information Center filed a complaint seeking a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”) in connection with the June 28, 2017 letter sent by Vice Chair Kris Kobach requesting publicly-available voter data. See Electronic Privacy Information Center v. Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Until the Judge rules on the TRO, we request that you hold on submitting any data. We will follow up with you with further instructions once the Judge issues her ruling.

In light of this new request, Secretary Williams will await further communication before releasing any data.
