From Virginia Fair Elections, Kerri Toloczko and Michelle Martin
I apologize for the delay, but we would like to invite you all, and your coalition members, to a special training on the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) with Heather Honey. The training is planned for today, September 7th, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern. Any who are interested may join.
Join Us Wednesday Sept. 7.
The Virginia Fair Elections (VFE) Coalition is hosting a special election integrity workshop via Zoom this week, September 7th, at 7PM on The Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). ERIC was allegedly established to help make voter rolls more accurate.
In reality, the primary effect of ERIC is to grow the voter rolls by converting potentially eligible but unregistered (EBU) persons into registered voters. States send Personal Identifiable Information (PII) to ERIC for all registered voters but also for all people who have completed a transaction at the DMV -- even if they have decline to register to vote.
In some states, ERIC also collects additional information on unregistered people from other agencies like Department of Human Services, Department of Aging and Department of Family Services. FOIA records reveal that ERIC shares private data of these EBUs with an organization that was funded by Mark Zuckerberg.
Please join VFE on Wednesday to learn details from special guest Heather Honey about the Verity Vote investigation!
Advance registration is required to join the workshop.
