Stop Using Interstate Cross Check

Governor Terry McAuliffe

In June Governor McAuliffe said he refused to comply with the Trump Administration's request for information about Virginia voters. He said, "Virginia conducts fair, honest, and democratic elections, and there is no evidence of significant voter fraud in Virginia”. While there is no evidence of voter fraud the Virginia Board of Elections is removing voters from the rolls faster than we can register them. Virginia is one of a few states with Democratic leadership that is using Interstate Cross Check to purge tens of thousands of voters from the rolls with little or no warning.

The following information was provided by the Virginia State Board of Elections

  • 73,798 registered voters were identified in the 2015-2016 Department of Elections Annual List Maintenance Report, as having been potentially registered in one of the other Crosscheck States based on the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck program.                                                                                                                    
  • 37,803 voters were identified in the 2015-2016 Annual List Maintenance Report as being potentially registered in one of the other participating ERIC States. removed from the voter rolls.

Virginia is one of a few states with Democratic leadership that is using Interstate Cross Check to purge tens of thousands of voters from the rolls with little or no warning. Currently nearly 74,000 Virginia voters have been identified by Interstate Cross Check as potentially being registered in more than one state. The Interstate Cross Check system compares only first name and last name creating many false positives. Nearly 7.2 million people have lost their right to vote because of Interstate Cross Check. Tell Gov. McAuliffe that the ERIC system is more far more accurate than Interstate Cross Check.
