84(R) - 2015
Relating to establishing an interstate voter registration crosscheck program.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated
The bill would amend the Election Code to require the Secretary of State to coordinate with other states and jurisdictions in order to develop systems to prevent the duplication of voter registration. A cross check is implemented with the intention of eliminating voter registration duplicates, and prevent voter fraud.
Vote Recommendation Notes
We support this legislation for the commitment to limited government, by participating in an existing solution to prevent duplicate voting profiles and ultimately working to eliminate potential intentional or unintentional voter fraud. This program works together with existing states, rather than setting up a complete new initiative.
