President Trump plans to sign an executive order on Thursday to launch a commission to review alleged voter fraud, a White House official confirmed to Fox News.
The order, titled “Presidential Commission on Election Integrity,” would establish a bipartisan commission, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, to review alleged voter fraud and suppression. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who has investigated voter fraud in Kansas, will serve as vice chair.
“This action by President Trump fulfills another promise made to the American people,” Pence said in a statement. “We can’t take for granted the integrity of the vote.”
The White House announced five members to the commission on Thursday: Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson (R), New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner (D), Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap (D), Christie McCormick, commissioner of the election assistance commission, and former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell(R).
