(Congress Report) – A watchdog group has revealed that a data error causing almost 31,000 non-citizens living in the state of Colorado to receive a voter-registration invitation is due to a requirement by a voter-roll nonprofit organization to reach out to those who have not registered to vote. So we either have cheating by the left on purpose, or cheating on the left due to incompetence. This is starting to go beyond the absurd.
“The Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC), which helps states clean up voter rolls and register voters, is linked to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office mailing voter registration instructions to roughly 31,000 non-citizens living in the state in October,” writes Natalia Mittlestadt of Just The News.
“A month before the November general election, the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office sent registration postcards to 31,093 people who had non-citizen state driver’s licenses,” she continues. “According to a report released on Thursday by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a conservative election law nonprofit, following the mailings, ‘county election clerks were briefed about a ‘data analytic error’ by the Secretary of State’s Office. The error put foreign nationals ‘living in Colorado on the state’s mailing list with voter registration information.'”
PILF then went on to explain in the filing that ERIC, which 33 states and the nation’s capital are part of in order to get voters registered and to clean up voter rolls, has a process for Eligible But Unregistered voters where licensed drivers who aren’t yet registered to vote are sent a set of postcards every election cycle. States [that] are part of ERIC must “find eligible citizens who are not registered to vote and to encourage them to register to vote.”
“The legal nonprofit noted that the Colorado secretary of state previously explained how there were ‘procedures in place to prevent mail from being sent to ineligible recipients,’ but that last year, ‘those procedures either were no longer in place, or, failed entirely,'” Middlestadt stated.
“Election officials in Moffat County asked the Secretary of State’s Office to provide more information regarding the 54 foreign nationals in the county who received the voter registration postcards, PILF reported,” she states.
The public records that were obtained by PILF Deputy Secretary of State Christopher Beall “cited ‘potential legal issues’ to justify denying county election officials complete information,” the document says.
J. Christian Adams, the president of PILF, released a statement saying, “Colorado shouldn’t be sending foreign nationals voter registration information. When they do, the public should be able to see all of the records so we can hold election officials accountable. Transparency in elections is essential. This circus right before a federal election shouldn’t happen. Knowing who is to blame and what went wrong is essential to prevent a repeat.”
Both the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office and ERIC did not respond immediately to a request for comment issued by Just the News on Thursday.
The founder of ERIC is David Becker, who is also the founder of the Center for Election Innovation & Research, which makes the claim, “The 2020 general election was the most secure in American history,” and was the recipient of almost $70 million from Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
