Idaho is sharing your private voter data (even though it promised not to)

November 12, 2017View for printing

Much ado was made earlier this year when the Trump administration asked all 50 states for their voter-registration rolls.

Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney told Kris Kobach, vice chairman of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, that the commission could have only the voter registration information available under Idaho law -- name, address, party affiliation and election-participation history.

Denney assured the public that other personal information collected on Idaho's voter registration forms -- a voter's date of birth, driver's license number and the last four digits of their Social Security number -- is not releasable under Idaho's public records law. Kobach, he said, could not have it.

In fact, Denney had already given it to Kobach.
