You may have heard of the Trump Voter Fraud Commission, formally known as the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
"Making this equation that somehow people not updating their driver's license is an indicator of voter fraud would be nearly as absurd as saying that if you have cash in your wallet, that that's proof that you robbed a bank", Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap said to applause.
"If you're here today, you can vote and be gone", one poll official told Veritas.
The president's claims, and his appointed commission, have been widely and repeatedly criticized by many political analysts and experts in the United States - not all of them Democrats. In the run-up to the meeting, Kobach wrote an article for the discredited Breitbart website that recycled President Trump's bogus claim about thousands of illegal votes being cast a year ago in New Hampshire.
Naturally, Kobach has stacked the panel of witnesses for his commission's second official meeting with fellow voter fraud conspiracy theorists, including Robert Popper, John Lott, Ken Block, Donald Palmer, and Hans von Spakovsky, to testify to the commission.

And he singled out New Hampshire as one of three states with "serious voter fraud". "We are not having voter fraud", said Jane Byrnes, organizer. "To purposely come up with ways to deprive am citizens the right to vote is wrong", King said in an interview with AL.com on Tuesday.
Kobach's column referred to what he said were recent statistics that showed "there were 6,540 same-day registrants who registered to vote in New Hampshire using an out-of-state driver's license to prove their identity". Instead he ended up mistakenly sending 125,000 Virginia voters a notification that wrongly claimed that they were registered to vote elsewhere.

The statute requires voters who move to the state within 30 days of an election to provide proof that they intend to stay.
