CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner is defending a request for voter roll information from President Donald Trump’s election fraud commission and says he will provide the state’s publicly available information.

Gardner is a member of the president’s commission which this week asked states to send voter information including names, birthdates and partial Social Security numbers if such information is public in their states.

In New Hampshire, the public database consists of names, addresses, party affiliations and voting history, including whether people voted in a general election and which party’s primary they voted in. It does not include Social Security numbers or birthdates.

Gardner got numerous complaints Friday about the request, but said the information is already public and is in fact routinely sold to outside groups.
