Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC)

The Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) is a bipartisan list maintenance collaboration between member-states to make sure that voters are only voting in one state and to encourage voters to register to vote in their new state if they haven’t done so. Until a campaign by election manipulators sought to undermine ERIC’s effectiveness, the list maintenance tool was widely accepted as the most effective tool available. Those seeking election have pulled their states out of ERIC to appeal to a more conservative base.
