The New York State Board of Elections has decided to give a commission investigating voter fraud portions of information.

The move makes New York the first state to comply with the request to turn over names, birth dates, addresses and even voting history of residents.

The commission is attempting to determine if there was widespread fraud in the last election cycle. Social Security numbers will not be given due to violations of voter privacy laws.

So far, 13 states along with Washington D.C. have denied the request to turn over voter info; while three other states are still debating the move.
