Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Murray applauded President Trump’s Executive Order to dissolve the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.

Last summer, Murray rejected a request by the Commission for voter data containing personal information of Wyoming voters. Murray was one of the first Republican Secretaries of State to oppose Trump’s request for voter information.

Murray, in a news release, said that he was pleased that President Trump dissolved the commission, as he felt the commission never clearly stated its purpose or provided any concrete explanation for why it was requesting private voter data. Murray said that the creation of the Commission was a federal overreach into a matter of state sovereignty. He added that he was proud of the way the 2016 election in Wyoming was handled, as it was accurate, secure, and conducted with integrity. Murray said that every individual voter in Wyoming can rest assured that he vote they cast was counted and that it went for the candidate for whom they voted.
