California Secretary of State Alex Padilla Statement on Today's Election Commission Meeting

Clinton is under greater scrutiny after fellow Democrat Sen.

The panel also heard a presentation from three speakers on electronic voting systems and their impact on election integrity, and watched a demonstration of 19th century New Hampshire voting machines still in use today.

New Hampshire law gives those new voters 60 days to get a state driver's license; yet, Kobach noted, of those 6,540 people who registered on November 7, 5,526 people have not yet obtained a license. However, as the Huffington Post explains, under New Hampshire election law, one has to be domiciled in New Hampshire to register to vote.

A man in NY said he got voter ID cards sent to his home for family members who moved away decades ago and now vote elsewhere. "But he's now in a position where the consequences of doing this are really serious".

In late June, the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity requested specific voter information from every state.

Under the local law, he notes, "a new resident has 60 days to obtain a New Hampshire driver's license". And they've been fueled by politicians such as former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, who claimed that Bay State voters followed him across the border in 2014 when he relocated to New Hampshire for a second run at the Senate.

"Our election process must be secure, fair and transparent, yet Trump and Kobach are using their sham commission to spread the lie of rampant fraud as a Trojan Horse for voter suppression". However, this year, another Republican, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu tightened the voter registration laws, requiring proof of residence.

When the conservative investigative group Project Veritas planted hidden cameras to record what went on during New Hampshire's 2016 primary, it discovered some disturbing information. The claim was so swiftly and easily dispatched at a fact-finding hearing in Manchester on Tuesday that it dramatically illustrated the foundation of the entire enterprise - a search to justify voter suppression laws on any and all grounds possible no matter the lack of evidence of actual voter fraud.

Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, wrote: "It has always been reported, anecdotally, that out-of-staters take advantage of New Hampshire's same-day registration and head to the Granite State to cast fraudulent votes".

President Trump's Voting Integrity Commission unexpectedly revealed important evidence suggesting that a return to paper ballots is the only way to prevent the possibility of major fraud from sophisticated hacking efforts. The advocacy group Common Cause states in a new report that the request led more than 5,000 Colorado voters to deregister so that their personal information would not be sent to Washington.

New Hampshire Public Radio reported in February that the majority of registrations with out-of-state driver's licenses occurred in towns that are home to colleges and universities.

The biggest problem with that argument is that it ignored a significant voting bloc - college students.

"Using cherry-picked data in order to support a false claim is unsafe and irresponsible", Woodburn insisted, according to Fox News. "It seems clear that someone so inflexibly committed to his position on voting fraud, and so contemptuous of opposing views, is a poor choice for membership on a fact-finding commission - even this one".

True, New Hampshire had some very close races. On the one hand, it allows people to cast their votes at the last minute, without first needing to register. "I think it's going to have to come from the federal government", he said.

"Making this equation that somehow people not updating their driver's license is an indicator of voter fraud would be nearly as absurd as saying that if you have cash in your wallet, that that's proof that you robbed a bank", Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap said to applause.

After a more than six-hour meeting of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on Tuesday, panel Vice Chairman Kris Kobach walked back a controversial claim he made about New Hampshire's 2016 election in a September 7 opinion piece on the conservative news website Brietbart.
