New York Agrees To Give Voter Info To Trump

BREAKING: The NY Board of Elections will comply with the feds and hand over the state's voter database. Here's what that means for you.

By Simone Wilson (Patch Staff) - Updated August 2, 2017 4:29 pm ET


ALBANY, NY — Personal information about all New York voters will be released to President Donald Trump's controversial "election integrity" commission, the state Board of Elections announced Wednesday, despite promises from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo that the state would withhold its voter database from the feds.

"We will comply," a spokesman for the Board of Elections told Patch. "The data will be sent out this afternoon."

Back in late June, after Trump's commission requested voter info from all 50 states, Gov. Cuomo said: “New York refuses to perpetuate the myth voter fraud played a role in our election. We will not be complying with this request, and I encourage the Election Commission to work on issues of vital importance to voters, including ballot access, rather than focus on debunked theories of voter fraud.”

However, each state's decision on whether to share its voter info with the feds — or with anyone else — is ultimately not up to the governor's office. It's up to the board of elections. And Wednesday, New York's board made the choice to comply.

Gov. Cuomo's office did not respond to a request for comment.

1. FL did also, I knew POS Rick Scott would

it is basic info, but it pisses me off, I fear the Russians will have it now & are able to manipulate our voter records
and I think they have already.
