Thousands of Colorado voters recently cancelled their voter registrations after President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal voters.
And rather than praise the president for weeding out illegal votes, Democrat talking heads have accused the administration of voter suppression.
In Colorado so far, 3,394 voters cancelled their registration, though their information is already public so it might not help much, the Denver Post reported.
The cancellations account for less than one percent of registered voters in Colorado.
“They don’t trust President Donald Trump’s voter integrity commission, and they didn’t realize how much of their voter registration information was already public under state law,” the paper reported.
But Colorado is only providing the president’s commission with voter information that is public.
“It’s my hope that folks who withdrew their registration will re-register, particularly once they realize that no confidential information will be provided and that the parties and presidential candidates already have the same publicly available information from the 2016 election cycle,” Secretary of State Wayne Williams, a Republican, said.
Still, many were sounding the alarm on voters being suppressed.

The New York Post’s Deroy Murdock believes he has the hysteria figured out.
“In order to preserve the dodgy electoral system that seems to benefit them when fishy things happen, their battle cries have devolved into ‘Count every vote, but don’t worry if some of them are negated by fake ones’ and ‘One man. One vote. Usually,'” he wrote.
Murdock shared some startling facts concerning voter fraud, in an op-ed for the Post.
In May 2016, CBS2 Los Angeles identified 265 dead voters in southern California. Many cast ballots “year after year.”
The Heritage Foundation’s non-exhaustive survey confirms, since 2000, at least 742 criminal vote-fraud convictions.
North Carolina announced in April 2014 that 13,416 dead voters were registered, and 81 of them recently had voted. Among 35,750 North Carolinians also registered in other states, 765 voted in November 2012, both inside and outside the Tarheel State.
South Carolina’s attorney general concluded in January 2012 that 953 people “were deceased at the time of their participation in recent elections.”
The Public Interest Legal Foundation recently discovered that Virginia removed 5,556 non-citizens from its voter rolls between 2011 and last May. Among these non-Americans, 1,852 had cast a total of 7,474 illegal ballots across multiple elections.
Perhaps that is what they are so concerned about.
Many on social media were happy about the news in Colorado.
Looks like they got something to hide, maybe a lack of the right to vote..? #MAGA

Voter information is already public. What a joke.

Purge the illegals, dead, pets and fraud off the voter rolls. Crooked hillary is down by more than 5 million popular votes.

If you were validly registered, why would you rush to withdraw your registration?

Even the social media editor of the far left Daily Kos wondered what the voters feared.
What are they afraid of?
