AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap says he’s reviewing a second request for voter data in the wake of President Donald Trump’s investigation of possible voter fraud.

Dunlap said earlier this month he would not comply with a request by the Trump commission that is doing the investigating because it ran afoul of state law. He says on Thursday he’s received a second request that states the requested information won’t be shared publicly.

Maine law prohibits state voter data from being disclosed publicly.

Dunlap says he still has concerns about the request. He says he’s reviewing it with legal counsel and intends to delay making a decision until the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity can meet to discuss it.

The commission is tentative scheduled to next meet in mid-September.
