McAuliffe: 'No intention' of honoring voter information request

RICHMOND, Va. (WVEC) -- Governor Terry McAullife says he is not honoring a request to release your voting information.

It's all part of President Trump's commission on investigating alleged voter fraud during the 2016 election. A letter sent Wednesday from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity asks secretaries of state to provide about a dozen points of voter data and respond to questions about fraud and election integrity. 

The request asks for states to release voter data, including the last four digits of social security numbers, addresses, political affiliation, and voting history.

Trump lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton but has alleged -- without evidence -- that three to five million people voted illegally.

In a statement McAullife says, "Virginia conducts fair, honest, and democratic elections, and there is no evidence of significant voter fraud in Virginia."
