Trump's commission on election fraud has told states to hold off on sharing voter data due to legal challenges, per the AP. Some states refused to comply with the request in the first place, as we reported earlier.

New timeline: The original deadline to share data was this Friday, July 14. Trump's commission has until July 17 to respond to a legal challenge from the Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington and asked states to hold off until a judge decides the case.

Other legal challenges: The ACLU filed in Washington, Florida, and New Hampshire.
