Conspiracy theory threatens to blow Texas out of program that keeps voter rolls updated.

ERIC is a national system that Texas officials say is an important tool to keep voting rolls clean. But a band of right-wing voting fraud activists, joined by state GOP officials, wants to gut it.

Now, lawmakers who regularly attend those meetings have introduced legislation written by the group that would end Texas’s participation in the coalition: the Electronic Registration Information Center, also known as ERIC.

Keith Ingram, the elections director for the secretary of state’s office, told the group that the program was the only option available to ensure voters aren’t registered or voting in more than one state at the same time. Nonetheless, the activists moved forward with an effort that experts say is set to undermine one of the best election integrity tools available to Texas and other states to prevent election fraud.

“Exponential” increase in potential for voter fraud without ERIC

The conservative campaign against ERIC, long considered the gold standard for cleaning voter rolls, began with misinformation published starting last year by a conservative website, The Gateway Pundit, about ERIC’s funding and origins. As conservative doubts grew and ERIC, led by executive director Shane Hamlin, attempted to correct the record, activists in some states began pushing Republican officials to withdraw their membership.

This week, in the wake of the board meeting, three states — Florida, Missouri and West Virginia — announced they would leave the program.
