Presidential Commission Set to Study Election Integrity

As promised, President Trump this week established a Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, to be headed by Vice President Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a long-time election integrity advocate.

 

Trump’s Executive Order sets out the advisory panel’s mission to “study the registration and voting processes used in Federal elections,” including

(a)  those laws, rules, policies, activities, strategies, and practices that enhance the American people’s confidence in the integrity of the voting processes used in Federal elections;

 

(b)  those laws, rules, policies, activities, strategies, and practices that undermine the American people’s confidence in the integrity of the voting processes used in Federal elections; and

 

(c)  those vulnerabilities in voting systems and practices used for Federal elections that could lead to improper voter registrations and improper voting, including fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent voting.

Members of the bipartisan Commission announced so far include EAC Commissioner Christy McCormick, former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson, New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner, and Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap.
