One state is seeing hundreds of people un-register to vote in what is perhaps an unintended consequence of the request by President Donald Trump's Commission on Election Integrity asking states to submit details about voters, The Hill reported Saturday.
The commission a week ago requested that all states upload publicly available voter information to a federal website, including names, birth dates, the last four digits of Social Security numbers and party affiliation.
But, some voters in Colorado are balking at the request, and one Denver clerk has seen a 2,150 percent increase in voters requesting their information be withdrawn, Denver's ABC affiliate reported. Hundreds so far in Colorado have dropped their voter registration.
Colorado does offer voters the option of paying a fee to make their information confidential.
Forty-four states said they would not fully comply with the request over privacy concerns for their citizens. Colorado is complying with the request and will release all publicly available information, but will not provide Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers, full date of birth or email addresses.
The commission requested voter's full name, address, date of birth, political party affiliation, the last four digits of their Social Security number, which elections they have voted in since 2006, felony convictions, whether they are also registered in other states, military status, and whether they live overseas.
