Iowa’s elected officials have spent some time this week praising the ERIC voter registration system. A number of state senators bragged about ERIC in their newsletters this week.

Coincidentally, ERIC is continuing to be exposed for its failures.

Wes Allen, Alabama’s new Secretary of State, withdrew his state from the system after promising to protect elections and secure the personal information of Alabama residents.

But even after withdrawing, Allen continued to do some legwork.

While in D.C. for the 2023 NASS Winter Conference, Allen visited the published address for ERIC’s headquarters. The address listed is:

1201 Connecticut Ave. NW
Suite 600
Washington D.C., 20036

“What I found was that there was no ERIC headquarters at that address,” Allen said. “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.”

According to The Gateway Pundit, the Global Innovation Fund, Dezenhall Resources, Grassroots Plus and other businesses have the exact same address — including the same suite number — as ERIC.

“Before I took office, Alabama transmitted the personal information of millions of our citizens to this private organization for the past several years. That information is stored on a server somewhere but we do not know where. There is no ERIC operation at the location they claim is their office,” Allen said. “A lot of personal data and taxpayer money has been transferred to ERIC. Where is that data? Where are the employees? Where are the offices? Where are the computers?”
