CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Some New Hampshire Democrats who oppose sending voter information to President Donald Trump’s election commission want a special legislative session to clarify state law.
Secretary of State Bill Gardner, a member of the commission investigating voter fraud, plans to comply with a request to send publicly available data to the commission. In New Hampshire, only someone’s name, address, party affiliation and voting history is public.
Critics argue the statewide database can’t legally be shared with the panel, and Democrats are collecting petition signatures as the first step toward a special session.
If 50 House members and eight senators sign, all lawmakers will be asked whether they want a special session. A session would be held if a majority of both chambers say yes.
