New Hampshire will send scanned, unsearchable images of voter data to President Donald Trump's commission on election fraud.

Republican Rep. Neal Kurk, Democratic state Sen. Bette Lasky and the American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire sued Gardner last month, arguing he doesn't have the authority under state law to provide voters' names, addresses and voting history to Trump's commission. 

But in an agreement announced in court Monday, both sides agreed that state law allows him to send the voter checklists each town and city sends to the state archive.

While the state also maintains an electronic voter database, state law does not allow the public to download or copy it. But printed checklists are considered public information.
