INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An Indiana official says the state won’t be able to provide much of the information requested by President Donald Trump’s commission investigating alleged voter fraud during the 2016 election.

The commission led by Vice President Mike Pence asked state election officials this week to provide data including names, party affiliations, addresses and voting histories of all voters and respond to questions about fraud and election integrity.

Republican Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is a commission member but says state law shields some of the requested information from public release. Lawson says the only publicly available information is the name, address and congressional district assignment of voters.

Trump has alleged without evidence that up to 5 million people voted illegally, costing him the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton.
