RNLA Endorses ERIC

April 10, 2014

The Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA) endorses ERIC in their response to the recent report of the Presidential Commission on Election Administration.

Page 7 of the report:

RNLA strongly agrees with the PCEA's recommendation that "states join interstate programs to share data and synchronize voter lists so that states, on their own initiative, come as close as possible to creating an accurate database of all eligible voters." The PCEA rightly recognizes that one can directly trace problems at the polling place, including long lines, back to deficiencies somewhere in the voter registration process, often from inaccurate registration records caused by inadequate list maintenance. The PCEA endorses both of the two major interstate registration data sharing agreements: The Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program (hereinafter referred to as "Crosscheck") and the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). RNLA agrees both ERIC and Crosscheck are valuable tools for shoring up the integrity of states' voter rolls.
