Suit charges Trump vote commission with breaking law

CNET - The Electronic Privacy Information Center, a nonprofit research organization, filed for a temporary restraining order (PDF) on Monday to block the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity from gathering voter records from state election officials. The commission has requested election officials provide voters' birth date, party affiliation, partial Social Security numbers, voter history, felony convictions and military service status.

"The publication of voters' personal information violates the constitutional right to informational privacy," EPIC's lawsuit says. "The Supreme Court has long recognized that individuals have a constitutionally protected interest in 'avoiding disclosure of personal matters.'"
