A lawsuit over Utah’s voter rolls is still up in the air — and so might President Trump’s voter fraud commission that requested the data in the first place. President Trump created the Election Integrity Commission at the beginning of his term to investigate unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud during the election — costing him the popular vote, so he claimed. That led to a blanket request to all 50 states for their voting rolls, including more sensitive data such as birth dates and voting history.
The Utah League of Women Voters and League of United Latin American Citizens sued the Lieutenant Governor’s office over the summer to stop the state from complying.
According to their lawyer, David Irvine, a settlement is still in negotiations.
“We’re interested in an arrangement that gives the plaintiffs some legally enforceable options to assure that Utah law on voter registration disclosure is scrupulously followed,” he says.
