WHERE’D IT GO?: Alabama Secretary of State Wes Allen Visits ERIC Headquarters in Washington DC

Then recently he had to be in Washington for a convention of Secretaries of State, so he decided to drop by the offices of ERIC. Their listed address is  1201 Connecticut Ave. NW, Ste 600, Washington, DC 20036.

Allen said:  “Since I was in town, I went to see the ERIC Headquarters. What I found was that there was no ERIC headquarters at that address. There were no employees.   There were no servers. There was no ERIC presence of any kind. Instead. I found a virtual office that is rentable by the day. What it was missing was people, servers, and any sign of the ERIC team.”


ERIC, ballot stuffing, and the 2022 election

ERIC could be actively facilitating interference with our elections this November. With the growing percentage of absentee voting in our elections, this issue takes on greater significance. The only way to offset the theft of our elections in the short time we have before the 2022 election is to have poll watchers be allowed access to the signature match process at the county supervisor of elections offices. This action will be the only way to ensure a clean, verifiable election in November.
