The Trump Administration's commission to look into voter fraud meets for the first time today. 

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was created after Trump alleged that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election. 

Trump cited no evidence of such fraud thus far but the commission is tasked with investigating.

They have already made waves for seeking public registration data on every American voter from individual states. California Secretary of State Alex Padilla has declined to cooperate. 

Take Two's A Martinez spoke with KPCC politics reporter Mary Plummer.
