Maryland Deputy Secretary of State Luis E. Borunda has resigned from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Borunda informed Gov. Larry Hogan, a fellow Republican, of his decision on Monday.

Hogan spokesman Doug Mayer told the Sun that Borunda joined the 15-member bipatisan commission "on his own" and had not been appointed by Hogan.

"He informed our office he has resigned from the commission," Hogan said. Borunda did not respond to requests for comment.

The commission was created by executive order by President Donald Trump in May after he asserted he would have won the popular vote in November's election if there had not been instances of voter fraud.

Last week the commission asked the 50 state secretaries of state to provide voter information including names and voter registration, but not how people voted. More than half of the states have said they will not comply.

Borunda's appointment to the panel drew questions when it was announced because he has no background in elections, the Sun reported at the time. In addition, the Maryland secretary of state's office does not oversee that state's election process.
