A.J. Cochran, a Republican state senator from Mississippi, has introduced legislation that would require the Trump administration to produce an audit of its voter fraud efforts.
The bill, which has been introduced in the state legislature, would also require states to “proactively report and publicly identify any instances of voter fraud” to federal officials.
In a statement, Cochran said the bill would “provide a mechanism to ensure that the integrity of our electoral processes is not compromised by any attempt to disenfranchise voters, including fraud.”
The legislation would also “immediately require the Secretary of State to produce to Congress, within 90 days of the enactment of this bill, a detailed report of all election results and all information regarding the number of ballots cast in each state as of the close of business on Election Day.”
Cochran is the first GOP state senator to introduce a bill this year.
The legislation comes after a series of controversial incidents, including the FBI’s recent report that accused Trump’s campaign of illegally tapping into voter databases.
On Friday, a federal judge in Maryland ordered the state to provide the FBI with information related to alleged voter fraud in the 2016 election.
Trump’s election victory was marred by allegations that thousands of noncitizens cast ballots in the states’ presidential primaries.
