Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett said today his office legally can't agree to a request from President Donald Trump's commission on election integrity to provide personal information about voters.

One request is from the U.S. Department of Justice - Civil Rights Division asking for "information regarding the State's procedures for compliance with statewide voter registration list maintenance provisions of the National Voter Registration Act and the Help America Vote Act".
Trump created the commission through an executive order in May. In addition to the voter information, the letter asks state officials for suggestions on improving election integrity and to share any evidence of fraud and election-related crimes in their states.
"It's a huge privacy concern", said Dale Ho, Director of the ACLU's Voting Rights Project.
The commission did not respond to a request for comment.
