AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap said he’s reviewing with the attorney general’s office whether to comply with a request by President Donald Trump’s commission investigating voter fraud.

Dunlap said Friday that some information would be withheld by state law even if the state ultimately decides to grant access to Maine’s Central Voter Registration information.

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity asked states this week to submit information including voter names, birthdates, the last four digits of Social Security numbers and voter history, as long as it isn’t prohibited by state law.

Maine law doesn’t allow access to Social Security numbers, full birth date, voter participation history or party affiliation. Dunlap said Maine voters can be confident that he won’t release any data that’s protected by Maine law.
