Statement Regarding Inaccurate Reporting on ERIC

A variety of media stories covering the topic of mail-in ballot fraud have inaccurately stated, either directly or by implication, that ERIC worked with The Washington Post to study the frequency of fraud in states with long-standing vote by mail systems.

The original Washington Post story about potential mail-in ballot fraud included data points collected directly from states that are members of ERIC, not from ERIC.

ERIC is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization run by the states who choose to join it. ERIC does NOT partner with media companies for any purpose. News stories, tweets, etc. stating or suggesting otherwise are incorrect.
