PAM FESSLER, BYLINE: When the president's commission first met in July, Vice President Mike Pence, the chairman, had some reassuring words.
Tuesday's meeting will include presentations from New Hampshire, where critics say the state's same-day registration law may lead to fraud - and point to a hotly debated study.
The "Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity" is becoming the very thing it was created to find: something that undermines voter confidence. After reviewing years of elections in which billions of ballots were cast, the Heritage report found only 10 instances of in-person voter impersonation. But New Hampshire's law is somewhat complicated because the Granite State makes a distinction between being a "resident" of the state and being "domiciled" in the state. This happened despite the fact Trump provided no proof that these buses or voter fraud existed. In 2016, the towns with the highest rates of voters who registered using out-of-state IDs were all home to college campuses.
"Poll workers told Veritas operatives that they did not need to live in the state to vote, that they could use a MA driver's license and that they could fill out a form if they had no ID", Scarborough recounted.

"6,540 people registered and voted on November 8, based on presenting out-of-state licenses, [but] as of August 30, about 15 percent (1,014 of the voters) had been issued New Hampshire driver's licenses", The Washington Times reported.
Judge Charles Temple allowed the law to take effect Tuesday, in time for the use of new voting forms in a state representative election in Belknap County, but said another hearing is needed. Most state election officials and election law experts say that USA voter fraud is rare.
Kobach says the commission's research into possible voter fraud has the potential to appear in lawsuits over Kansas voter registration policies. Established purely as a result of Donald Trump's fragile ego - in his pursuit to prove his belief that he would have won the popular vote if it weren't for "millions" of fraudulent voters - this group is essentially the voting rights equivalent of the "investigative team" that Trump put together to look into Barack Obama's birth certificate.
Ken Block, a researcher for ex-White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon's watchdog group, the Government Accountability Institute, shared with the commission a study he conducted that claims there were almost 40,000 instances of double-voting in last year's election. Gupta also argues in the piece that "Instead of looking for ways to restrict the vote, which is the unspoken mission of the commission, we should be looking for ways to expand the vote". But Mr. Dunlap, the ME secretary of state, gave him no quarter, calling the fraud claim "a reckless statement" akin to claiming that a man with money in his wallet must have robbed a bank.
Commission Vice Chairman Kris Kobach, Kansas secretary of state, wrote a column for Breitbart suggesting those were illegal out-of-state voters. President Trump also tweeted about the "serious voter fraud" that had occurred in New Hampshire.
Former Gov. John H. Sununu offered opening remarks as an invited guest, and echoed Gardner's concern that voters must be convinced that the election process has integrity in order to encourage their participation. State law allows people who live in the state but do not have New Hampshire driver's licenses to vote. But that does not mean they are not eligible to vote in New Hampshire.
