Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan's legal team is reviewing a new request from the administration of President Donald Trump for voter registration information.

Kris Kobach is vice chairman of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.

Trump created the commission in May over concerns about voter fraud.

A recent ruling from a federal judge allowed the commission to continue seeking voter records.

Earlier this month, Reagan denied the request for Arizona voter data, saying it raised privacy concerns because the commission planned to make the information publicly available.

Kobach now says the data will be kept confidential and secure and be discarded once the commission's analysis is finished.

A spokesman for Reagan says her legal team is reviewing the request and it's unclear when a decision will be made.
