Illinois State Legislators Debate Controversial Voter Data Program
Dozens of Illinois legislators are pushing for the state to leave a controversial voter data program. It’s called Crosscheck, based in Kansas, and is meant to help states clean voter records. It has been championed by Kansas Republican Kris Kobach, who now head’s president Trump’s anti voter fraud initiative. At a hearing Wednesday, some state legislators heard from a cyber security expert who said Crosscheck could allow widespread voter data theft. State legislators did not take any action Wednesday afternoon.
