Good News! Alabama Secretary of State Officially Announces State’s Withdrawal from Failed and Corrupt ERIC Voter Roll System
For decades the Democrats and leftists have fought ferociously to prevent the cleanup of State voter registration rolls. Recognizing a potential niche, left wing activists created ERIC to clean voter rolls their way, using their rules. So in 2012 the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) was formed as a membership organization primarily for blue States. ERIC is essentially a left wing voter registration drive disguised as voter roll clean up. But it’s been gaining traction in Red States too. Originally funded by the Soros Open Society, it is now responsible for cleaning the voter rolls in 31 States, plus D.C. A top election official from each member State is appointed a seat on the ERIC Board or as an Officer, all unpaid positions.
ERIC located 17 million new voters for the 2020 election, the most in the history of their organization. For comparison, they only found 5.7 million in 2012, Obama’s reelection.
The ERIC database is comprehensive and would be one of the most coveted by bad actors looking to influence an election. Member States must not only submit all details on inactive and active voters to ERIC every 60 days. But they must also provide every individual in their states Motor Vehicle Department database, both licensed and ID recipients. This combo of data is breathtaking. It’s everyone who could generate a legal ballot. It includes those approaching voting age, even those here illegally yet issued an ID by their left leaning State. This data includes names, addresses, DOB, License #, last 4 of social #, voter activity, phone, email, title and type of citizenship documentation, and much more!
ERIC doesn’t just manage lists, they demand action. But it’s not the action you would expect, like cleaning voter rolls. ERIC provides each member State a targeted list of people that are not registered to vote. The Membership Bylaws require the State to contact at least 95% of these people within 90 days, soliciting them to register. ERIC also wants specific registration profiles updated and requires the State to contact these voters within 90 days too. It’s essentially a left wing voter registration drive all paid for by the States, not the Democrat Party. The membership fee is $25,000 but costs can run into the millions to fund the activities and membership dues.
The Gateway Pundit has extensively reported on the ERIC system:
** ERIC Part 1: Who’s “Cleaning” Our Voter Rolls? ERIC Now in 31 States
** ERIC Part 2: Largest U.S. Counties Removed ZERO to TWO Ineligible Voters
** ERIC Part 3: The Founding of the Nation’s Largest Voter Roll Clean-up Operation
** ERIC Part 4: A Response to the Panicked Media Attacks
ERIC was funded by an “anonymous” donor and The Pew Center On The States. This grant was provided by the George Soros Open Society. David Becker, an experienced Democrat election lawyer, left the Justice Department to create the ERIC architecture. Originally a blue State project, ERIC had 11 member states by 2014 and 22 by 2017. ERIC has not published an annual report since 2017, almost 5 years ago. Becker, who still has a seat on the ERIC board, went on to create the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) in 2016. He distributed $69.5 million in grants from Zuckerberg for the 2020 election using similar methods as CTCL.
ERIC is a voluntary nation-wide voter registration system funded in part by leftist Globalist George Soros’ Open Society. Of the 31 member states, Louisiana is the first and only one yet to terminate its relationship with ERIC due to serious security concerns regarding ERIC’s management of voter registration information.
In November Alabama announced it would scrap the corrupt ERIC system.
This week Alabama became the second state to terminate their contract with the Electronic Registration Information System (ERIC).
The Troy Messenger reported:
(notice the mainstream BS and spin)
Alabama Secretary of State Wes Allen announced on Tuesday, Jan. 17, that Alabama was withdrawing from the 32-state voter registration partnership known as the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC).
ERIC is a non-profit, data-sharing effort designed to maintain accurate voter rolls that links 32 states and Washington D.C. together. Allen sent a letter to ERIC announcing the decision on the same day he was sworn into office.
“I made a promise to the people of Alabama that ending our state’s relationship with the ERIC organization would be my first official act as Secretary of State,” Allen said in a statement. “Providing the private information of Alabama citizens, including underage minors, to an out-of-state organization is troubling to me and to people that I heard from as I traveled the state for the last 20 months.”
ERIC was created to serve as a tool to maintain accurate voter rolls and combat potential fraud by allowing stats to know when someone moves, dies or registers elsewhere. While that may be ERIC’s stated efforts, conspiracy theories have claimed it’s a “tool for fraud.” The conspiracy theories were spurned on by an article in the Gateway Pundit that alleged that ERIC was created by “left-wing activists” as a “left wing registration drive disguised as voter roll clean up.”
