​North Carolinians Push Back Against Federal Voter Data Request

Jul 12, 2017

A federal voter fraud commission’s request for voter data from individual states has prompted concern from voters and politicians. The commission was formed at the behest of President Trump in reaction to claims of widespread voter fraud. In North Carolina the state elections board is facing a wave of calls from voters who want to voice opposition, or even cancel their voter registration in reaction to the federal data request.

Host Frank Stasio speaks with News & Observer reporter Lynn Bonner about state reaction to the federal commission.
