In all, 44 states have in part or in totality declined to provide the requested voter data. Why?

As the Washington Post pointed out, about half of the emails published were already submitted prior to July 5, when the Commission's Federal Register notice soliciting comments said the written comments, including names and contact information, may be publicly posted.

Some commenters expressed serious concern with the commission's actions, including the worry that the commission's request to states for the last four digits of voters' social security numbers could open people up to bank fraud. Right after the commission was established, plenty of states declined to share voter information but yesterday the #White House released emails sent by angry voters and did not withhold sensitive information that might give away their identities.

To become one, a voter must sign an affidavit saying they're anxious that they or someone in their family will be harassed or in physical danger if their voter information is made public.

Stabbing attack on tourists at Egyptian Red Sea resort
The attacker has been arrested and is now being interrogated to determine his motives, Egypt's Interior Ministry announced. The ministry said three gunmen opened fire on a police auto and then fled, killing two policemen and three conscripts.

"I will not hand over Minnesota voters' sensitive personal information to the commission", he said in a statement.

A lot of people did not like the idea, fearing that their personal information could be made public.

The White House website encouraged the public to submit comments to the commission, and many of them did so - only to have much of their information made publicly available through the website.

Others were more colorful, and included messages like: "I hope you get just shit and nothing else", and more simply, "Fuck off".

Similarly, the FTC tells commenters that "published comments include the commenter's last name and state/country as well as the entire text of the comment".

The White House does not appear to have issued any such public guidelines or warnings prior to releasing the emails, all of which appear to have been sent to the Election Integrity Commissions' email address as listed in a letter sent to U.S. Secretaries of State.

Another 182 Colorado voters signed up to become "confidential voters", a designation that allows their information to be withheld.

As of Friday afternoon, the emails are still uncensored and available on the White House's website.
