Read The Wise, Hilarious Responses To The White House's Voter Fraud Commission

It seems the request for voter information has united the country.

It appears President Donald Trump's voter fraud commission has brought the United States together.

In June, the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity requested detailed voter information from all 50 states, including the last four digits of social security numbers and who citizens voted for. So far, 46 states have refused to fully comply with the request.


"My reply would be: They can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico, and Mississippi is a great state to launch from," Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican, said in a statement released June 30. "Mississippi residents should celebrate Independence Day and our state's right to protect the privacy of our citizens by conducting our own electoral processes."

The commission was formed after President Trump repeatedly claimed millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election without providing evidence. Experts say voter fraud is not a widespread issue and several studies have supported that hypothesis.

Nevertheless, the Trump administration has pushed forward with an unpopular commission. This week, the administration solicited feed back from voters, posting the below on the White House's website:

Sure enough, the responses came pouring in. The White House released all 112 pages of the public responses it received.

Some people wrote to express extreme displeasure. Others made pleas for the administration to back down from their plans.

Just three appeared to support the administration's commission.

Below, we've included some of the responses from the White House's release. Unlike the White House, we have removed names and email addresses from the responses in an effort to protect individuals' privacy, as it was not immediately apparent that responders knew their personal information would be shared.

Some took the time to type up what appeared to be elaborate jokes.

Others kept it a bit more simple. 

By publishing the responses, the voter fraud commission actually gave away some people's personal information, including email addresses and home addresses. That realization caused some concern on Twitter.  

Still, the responses were an exercise in free speech, and many observers were happy Americans took the time to use their voice and give feedback on the White House's agenda.
