Trump to create panel to study voter fraud, suppression

Trump to create panel to study voter fraud, suppression

Kobach, who has championed the strictest voter identification laws in the country, will be the vice chairman of the commission, which is to be led by Vice President Mike Pence and is expected to include about a dozen others, including state officials from both political parties, the official said.

Trump is trying to change the subject and distract from the Russian Federation, but in the bigger picture, this White House is also anxious to make it harder for people who are more likely to support Democrats to vote.

New Hampshire officials have said there was no evidence of major voter fraud in the state.

Trump signed an executive order Wednesday establishing a commission tasked with reviewing Trump's allegations that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 elections. When done, they'd report to Trump on relevant policies, and vulnerabilities in voting systems.

All in all, the commission will aim to ensure confidence in the integrity of federal elections and hope to give a peace of mind to all those who are still concerned about this matter - AKA the President and literally no one else. The president has previously called for an investigation to examine his unfounded claims that millions of people voted illegally for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

ACLU's Voting Rights Project director said: "President Trump is attempting to spread his own fake news about election integrity".

Based on an extrapolation of previous election studies, Richman determined more than 800,000 noncitizens likely voted in the 2016 presidential race, significant, but not almost enough to overcome Hillary Clinton's popular vote victory.

In a statement, Grimes said that the commission will "no doubt serve as a tool to further real and serious Republican attacks on American voting rights and leave eligible voters disenfranchised".

Top civil rights leaders said the commission would encourage voter suppression by justifying new barriers like requiring identity cards for voting.

Numerous studies have shown voter fraud to be extremely rare.

Many state election officials are also anxious the commission will divert attention from other serious concerns, such as aging equipment and the threat of hacking. I have people say it was more than that. "[It] shall be exclusively advisory and shall submit a report to the President that identifies. laws, rules, policies, activities, strategies, and practices that enhance the American people's confidence in the integrity of the voting processes used in Federal elections".
