AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap is not aware of any evidence that calls into question the integrity of the nation’s voting process, but he’s nonetheless ready to serve on President Trump’s commission to review alleged voter fraud.
Trump signed an executive order Thursday creating a panel led by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
The commission is tasked with looking at allegations of improper voting and fraudulent voter registration. It will include two Republicans and two Democrats, New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner and Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap.
Dunlap’s spokeswoman said participation allows Dunlap “an opportunity to defend the elections process from a position of authority, as a fully informed and engaged participant.”
