Maggie Toulouse Oliver was among the first secretaries of state to say no a request from Trump’s sham voter fraud panel for the personal social security numbers, voter history and personal data of more than a million New Mexico voters. At least a dozen chief elections officers around the country have since joined.
“I will never release the personally identifiable information of New Mexico voters protected by law, including their social security number and birthdate. Further, I will not release any other voter information like names, addresses or voting history unless and until I am convinced the information will not be used for nefarious or unlawful purposes, and only if I am provided a clear plan for how it will be secured. As New Mexico’s Chief Election Official, I will continue to ensure the integrity of our elections while protecting the voting rights and personal privacy of our voters.”
When President Trump announced his Advisory Commission on Election Integrity earlier this year, Secretary of State Toulouse Oliver released this statement:
“If President Trump truly wants to boost Americans’ confidence in the integrity of our elections, he should stop making false claims of rampant voter fraud. President Trump’s voter fraud allegations are simply not true and they are doing real damage to our democracy. I fear that Trump’s Commission will be nothing more than a Trojan Horse used to justify partisan efforts making it harder to vote.”
New Mexican voters took to Twitter to say thank you to Secretary of State Toulouse Oliver.
