BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota may give voter information to a commission looking at election fraud, after all.

The state initially said it would not hand over data requested by President Donald Trump’s commission in June.

Deputy Secretary of State Jim Silrum said the state would answer the commission’s questions about voting procedures but that releasing voter details would violate state law.

Silrum told The Associated Press on Thursday that election officials are giving the request a second look after the commission pledged not to make public individual voters’ information.

He says he expects a decision next week.

More than 15 states denied the request at first. At least five of them are considering complying. New York is the only state that initially said no that now plans to deliver the data.
