RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina’s elections agency has followed through on previous plans to give President Donald Trump’s commission investigating voter fraud access only to publicly available data.

The state’s chief elections regulator wrote a letter to a top leader of the Trump advisory panel Wednesday.

It included a link to election data already accessible by the public that leave out voters’ birth dates and Social Security and driver’s license numbers, which are confidential. The public information does include voters’ names, addresses, political affiliations, demographic data and participation in past elections.

State Board of Elections Executive Director Kim Strach’s letter also provided the commission with the board’s audit of last fall’s election and observations about efforts to ensure only lawful voters cast ballots.
