CONCORD - President Trump officially disbanded what was left of his so-called “Presidential Commission on Election Integrity” yesterday. The commission’s main act during its tenure was to attempt to procure voting information on millions of registered voters, including Granite Staters. The American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire (ACLU-NH) successfully prevented New Hampshire’s Secretary of State from sharing electronic voter information from the centralized voter database with this so-called commission. Over two hundred Granite Staters came out in vocal opposition when the commission held its second meeting at St. Anslem's in September.
Devon Chaffee, executive director of ACLU-NH, had this reaction to the news of the commission’s dissolution:
“The dissolution of this commission reaffirms what Granite Staters have known all along, and that is that New Hampshire conducts fair, honest, and democratic elections, and there is no evidence of significant voter fraud here. This commission proved to be a distraction to the real issues facing our electoral system. Now that this distraction has been rightfully disbanded, we can focus on action that will actually secure our electoral system and protect our voter data from hacking and tampering. This must include ending New Hampshire’s participation in the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program, which continues to imperil the security and accuracy of NH’s voting rolls. The ACLU-NH looks forward to working with legislators to end New Hampshire’s participation in Crosscheck and to secure our electoral system.”
