Last week President Trump dissolved his Election Integrity Commission with an executive order. As Elizabeth Steele, Election Director for Colorado Common Cause, tells KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh, the commission’s legacy may go forward under the Department of Homeland Security.

Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams stated that more than 1,400 of the 5,000 that deregistered following his announcement that Colorado would give requested information to the commission have since re-registered.
