WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says the state will not be giving the federal voter fraud commission he leads the partial Social Security numbers that he has asked other states to provide from their voter rolls.

Kobach as vice chairman of the commission has sent letters to every state requesting names, addresses, party, voting history and the last four digits of their Social Security numbers. His office says his letter only asks for publicly available voter roll data.

In Kansas, the Social Security number is not publicly available. Kobach said on Friday he would not be sharing Social Security information for Kansas voters with the commission at this time.

He did not rule out the possibility of providing it to them in the future.
