Elections in Delaware are administered by the election commissioner, who is an independent nonpartisan official.
Delaware will not comply with a request from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity to provide sensitive voter registration information.
Joining officials in several dozen states, State Election Commissioner Elaine Manlove will not send voter data to the commission.
“Releasing this information to the White House would not serve the mission of safeguarding the fairness and integrity of elections in Delaware and would not be in the best interests of Delaware voters,” said Manlove.
“Delaware has a long history of running fair and efficient elections open to all qualified voters. We should not be a part of any effort to turn back the clock on the progress we have made,” said Secretary of State Jeffrey Bullock. “Delaware will not be a party to this disingenuous and inappropriate campaign against one of the nation’s foundational institutions.”
The letter was addressed to Bullock and was forwarded to Manlove.
