STATEMENT FROM DASS CHAIR DENISE W. MERRILL ON TRUMP/KOBACH COMMISSION

(Indianapolis, IL) – Today, the Democratic Association of Secretaries of State (DASS) began convening in Indianapolis to discuss the Trump/Kobach Commission and specifically its recent request for individual voter information from states. DASS will also be meeting through the weekend with their Republican counterparts.

“DASS is hopeful for a bi-partisan response with their Republican counterparts to what has been widely panned as an overreaching and unnecessary request for personal information from the Kobach Commission. We already know we have support from several Republican Secretaries of State based on public statements and hope they will all join us in agreeing that certain actions by this commission are an overreach and will lead to undermining access to voting.”
