WASHINGTON D.C. — A growing number of states say they are unwilling to accede to broad requests for voter information by President Donald Trump's voter fraud commission.

A letter went out to all 50 states from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity headed by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach asking for the names, addresses, dates of birth, partial Social Security numbers, and party registration of registered voters, according to Business Insider.

The letter also requested ten years' worth of voter history, including whether someone has registered in more than one state and information on felony convictions.

So far, at least 12 secretaries of state are refusing to disclose voters' personal information that is not already publicly available.

"Kentucky will not aid a commission that is at best a waste of taxpayer money and at worst at attempt to legitimize voter suppression efforts across the country," said Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, in a statement. "The president created his election commission based on the false notion that 'voter fraud' is a widespread issue it is not."

California also rejected the commission's requests, saying turning over the data would "legitimize" unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud.

"I will not provide sensitive voter information to a commission that has already inaccurately passed judgment that millions of Californians voted illegally," said California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, in a statement Thursday.

Other states pushing back on the commission's requests are: Indiana, Virginia, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Minnesota, Utah, Oklahoma, New York, Tennessee, and New Mexico.
