Mass. Secretary Of State Weighs In On Voter Fraud Claims, Voter Information Requests

If the Trump administration wants help to battle what they've been calling massive voter fraud across the country -- a claim they've yet to prove -- it can count Massachusetts out; and we're not the only ones.

The 15-member Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which was created in May via executive order, is asking states to hand over voters' personal information - including their names, addresses, dates of birth, political affiliation and voting history. They also want the last four digits of their social security number, whether they've been convicted of a felony, their registration history and whether they've ever lived overseas.

Nearly every state is either refusing to hand over their voter information or are only partially complying.

Secretary of State Bill Galvin is the man in charge of all those records in Massachusetts and joined Jim to talk about it.
