Texas Secretary of State David Whitley answered questions over the decision to give prosecutors a list of 95,000 individuals on the state’s voter rolls who were considered potential noncitizens before vetting the data, according to U.S. News & World Report. The data wrongly included naturalized citizens. As such, the American Civil Liberties Union requested an injunction from a federal judge to stop the questioning of registered voters about their citizenship based on the list, and a lawsuit was filed by those who appeared erroneously on the list. Meanwhile, Connecticut legislators introduced a bipartisan House bill to prohibit the disclosure of voter registration data for commercial data but would allow some data to be made available to election and political committees.
