In 2017 the Trump Administration requested and received 2016 voting data from the states. In some states this data can be used to determine how a person voted based on a code that was entered into the system before the person cast their ballot.

What happened to this investigation?

Could the Trump Campaign use this data in their 2020 run?

    Are you asking if he can legally use it? Or are you asking if it can be used in general? I would guess that if he can/will use this information that it already is being used. – Joe W Jan 20 '20 at 1:01

    Are you sure of the part of that code that allows to identify a voter's vote? It seems like a major design flaw, regardless of who controls the information. In any case, in your link for several states that the data provided was "publicly available data", so in those cases the Trump campaign should have no problems getting it by itself (although they probably should get it from the original source). – SJuan76 Jan 20 '20 at 9:11
