Will Texas turn over your voter information to Trump's fraud commission?

AUSTIN When President Donald Trump tweeted days after his election that he would have won the popular vote had it not been for millions of illegally cast votes, he set off a firestorm of criticism.

The assertion of widespread voter fraud has been repeatedly debunked. Yet Trump created a federal commission on voter fraud in May, led by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who similarly claimed people who are in the U.S. illegally have been allowed to vote.

The controversy over the commission hit Texas in June, when Kobach asked election officials in every state to turn over voter registration records. The request included full names, addresses, dates of birth, political party affiliation, last four digits of Social Security numbers and voter history since 2006, among other categories.

Civil rights and voter advocacy groups cried foul, claiming an invasion of voters' privacy. Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos said the state would partially comply with the request, handing over only information that was already public: names, dates of birth and registration, addresses, voting methods and elections voted in.
