RED Alert 8/6/17

REMEDIATE:

Help end the Interstate Voter Crosscheck program. Twenty eight states are currently part of this program, including Illinois. Each year since 2010, approximately 8.6 million Illinois voter registration records have been submitted to the Arkansas and Kansas Secretaries of State, including names, birth dates, and partial social security numbers. An analysis of the program found that this program creates millions of false positives. This unreliable data has been used to purge legal voters from the voting rolls. Send a letter to the Illinois State Board of Elections to demand they terminate their voluntary partnership Crosscheck.
