Back in the spring of 2016, an intrepid ACLU voting rights expert in California named Lori Shellenberger was able to help inform state legislators of the dangers of a new computer program against voter fraud called Interstate Crosscheck. The program claimed to identify people who were voting in more than one state. What it really did was remove hundreds of thousands of mostly minority voters from the rolls.
In recent weeks, we've seen two amazing documentaries I want you all to know about.
Twenty-eight states are participating in the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program this election season, a program supposedly designed to comb through voter lists and prevent fraud. Seems pretty benign, right? There’s no way Crosscheck, launched by Kansas Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach, could be insidious and racist, is there?
