Idaho to handle voter info request using public record law

Idaho officials will treat a request for voter records from President Donald Trump’s commission investigating alleged voter fraud as a public records request, Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney announced Monday afternoon.

Denney said he doesn’t intend to respond to the commission’s request for the state’s voter rolls until July 14. He will use that time to work with Gov. Butch Otter and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden to develop the “appropriate and legally required response.” All three men are Republicans, and Idaho is considered one of the most conservative states in the nation.

“While a request for voter information itself is not atypical, and while specific parts of the state voter roll are in fact public, this particular request was of a unique enough nature that it bears some additional review,” Denney said in a prepared statement.
