Write to the RI Secretary of State

Dear Secretary Gorbea,

We are alarmed by the recent letter apparently sent from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity requesting voter registration information from all fifty secretaries of state. What is being requested is an enormous amount of personal information for reasons that we find suspicious. Voter fraud has been hyped as a huge problem in this country, contrary to any evidence. We are not comfortable with my personal voting information in the hands of this commission. We do know that some of this information is considered public, but we are counting on you and the State of Rhode Island to be vigilant stewards of this information.

We hope that you follow the lead of the secretaries of state of Virginia, California, Kentucky, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut in refusing to provide this information to the commission.

Thank you,
William H Calhoun
