(HorizonPost.com) – Last month, Alabama Secretary of State-elect Wes Allen announced that the state would be withdrawing from the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC), a voter-roll management system with ties to far-left groups.
In a statement, Allen said he campaigned for Secretary of State on the promise to withdraw the state from ERIC and he was keeping his promise. He notified the program that Alabama would “immediately and permanently cease to transmit any information” or participate in any way with the ERIC system when he takes office on January 16, 2023.
ERIC’s voter-roll management organization is used by 33 states ostensibly to identify duplicate or deceased registered voters by cross-referencing states’ voter and DMV records. Alabama joined ERIC in 2015, paying $25,000 a year for its membership.
However, ERIC was founded by far-left political activist David Becker.
