Illinois To Remain In Voter Crosscheck System
Illinois is sticking with the voter crosscheck system, despite questions about security, and concerns about politics. The Illinois State Board of Elections yesterday approved a plan to stay in the multi-state voter information database as a way to get a more complete picture of who is registered to vote in all of Illinois' neighboring states. Advocates, and a few Democratic state lawmakers, say voter crosscheck is vulnerable to hackers, and they fear it may also be used for political purposes to keep voters away from the polls.
