FFEC Opposes Request to States for Private Voter Data
In solidarity with other election integrity and voting rights organizations across the nation, Florida Fair Elections Coalition (FFEC) strongly opposes the Trump administration’s request to the states for personal data on American voters beyond what is already publicly available.
We further object to the apparent purpose for which this information is being sought—the pursuit of baseless claims of voter fraud that only serve as pretexts for erecting new barriers to voter registration and participation. As Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach, who made the request for the newly created Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, has a long history of making false claims about the prevalence of voter fraud in order to justify restrictions on registration and voting that many believe have disenfranchised thousands of Kansans.
