North Carolina to provide public voter data to fraud panel

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina's elections board will provide voter data requested this week by President Donald Trump's commission investigating alleged voter fraud. But the records will not include personal information deemed confidential.

Executive Director Kim Strach of the state election and ethics commission said Friday in a release that she recognizes the public's concerns about voter privacy, and that only data already considered public records will be provided. That includes a voter's name, address, political affiliation, demographic data and participation in past elections. No Social Security and driver's license numbers will be included.

Democratic officials in some states say they will not comply with the request because it's based on false fraud accusations. Trump has claimed - without evidence - that between 3 million and 5 million people voted illegally last year.
