The Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) presents itself as a streamlined and budget-friendly solution for states to manage precise voter records. Though it has been successful in detecting numerous potentially inaccurate or unauthorized voter registrations, certain facets of its activities raise questions. Established by the progressive Pew Charitable Trusts, it is possible that funding came from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations network. The organization’s founder, who still wields influence within ERIC, has a background in left-wing activism and questionable behavior. The vast quantities of confidential personal information obtained from member states are shared with another progressive non-profit, the Center for Election Innovation and Research, which was deeply involved in the infamous “Zuckerbucks” incident. ERIC is significantly more efficient at increasing voter registration numbers than maintaining their accuracy. Lastly, the acquisition and utilization of voter information from member states could potentially infringe upon the Help America Vote Act, the National Voter Registration Act, and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act.
