Activists Vow to Continue Fight Against Voter Suppression

Governor’s Veto Yet Another Reminder: Elections Matter

Attention is now focused on the November elections and future legislation to secure elections and fight voter suppression, after Governor Rauner’s veto of SB 2273. The bill would have modified existing law to stop Illinois from sharing voter data with the Interstate Crosscheck system, which is riddled with security holes, according to research by Indivisible Chicago and others. As written, SB 2273 would have allowed Illinois to exclusively share voter data with either the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) or through one-on-one agreements with bordering states for the purpose of maintaining voter rolls as citizens move in or out of the state. 

In a press conference earlier this week, activists and legislators argued that the Russian hacking of Illinois’ voter database should highlight for the Governor the importance of election cybersecurity. However, Rauner’s veto reflects the same party-over-security decision that he has made in lockstep with GOP leaders at every step in the process.

“We’re disappointed, but not surprised. Like President Trump, Rauner prefers to ignore threats to voters’ personal data and to the security of our election process,” said Steve Held, one of the leaders of the Indivisible Chicago team fighting for data privacy protections and voter rights. “Priority number one is making sure that we have a new governor next year. Then we’ll have a partner to work with to make our voting laws even stronger.”

Held noted that the GOP’s original support for Crosscheck led to a positive outcome. “Had the State Board originally voted for Illinois to leave Crosscheck, we would have moved on to a new issue and never discovered all of the security vulnerabilities that forced Secretary Kobach to suspend the program this year”, he said.

Election officials claim they use Crosscheck as an additional source to maintain voter rolls; however, it has been plagued by a series of security vulnerabilities which has resulted in the suspension of the program while the Department of Homeland Security conducts a security audit following the release of voters’ private information. Crosscheck is managed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who was chosen by President Trump as the vice chairman and spokesperson for his failed commission on voter fraud, and last spring was held in contempt by a federal judge for failing to notify thousands of Kansans in 2016 that they were registered to vote.

In recent months other states have quit the Crosscheck program. They’re responding to increasing evidence that Crosscheck leaves voters vulnerable to identity theft through the insecure handling of sensitive data. In just this past month:

  • Both Massachusetts and Kentucky have announced that they are abandoning the Crosscheck program.
  • Last month a federal judge blocked Indiana’s use of Crosscheck to purge voters.
  • The ACLU of Kansas is now suing Kansas for exposing nearly 1,000 Kansans voter data in its management of the Crosscheck program. Florida election officials acknowledged that the personal data for nearly 1,000 Kansans was compromised as a result of their participation in the Crosscheck program, prompting Florida to offer to pay for LifeLock protection to all impacted Kansans. This data had been shared with a Kansas-based Voters Against Crosscheck as a result of a public records request and subsequently shared with Indivisible Chicago.
  • Missouri, one of the original founding states in Crosscheck, along with South Carolina and Florida have announced that they are joining the ERIC program to maintain voter roll.
  • After months of assurances from Kansas Secretary of State Kobach and Director of Elections Bryan Caskey that Kansas’ systems were secure, Netragard, a security research firm found that the Kansas government’s network was “significantly exposed”, posing a risk to all Kansas systems, including the Crosscheck database.
  • Gizmodo reported the careless exposure of the last four digits of social security numbers for thousands of Kansas state employees, including 90% of Kansas legislators and Secretary Kobach himself.

Indivisible Chicago is leading the call for every state, including Illinois, to withdraw from Crosscheck both to protect sensitive data that can lead to identity theft and as a moral stand against voter suppression efforts. To learn more and to join this fight, visit https://endcrosscheck.com.

We Urge Governor Rauner to Act Now to Protect Illinois Voters

News of Russian hackers targeting Illinois adds urgency to signing of SB 2273

The Russian hacking of Illinois’ voter database is further galvanizing activists in support of a bill which would close a massive security vulnerability in Illinois’ voter database. SB 2273, currently awaiting Governor Rauner’s signature, will add new protection to voters’ personal data, apparently already at risk based on yesterday’s Justice Department indictment of twelve Russian military intelligence officers who “conspired to… interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election”. The indictment sheds new light on the scope of the attack against Illinois’ voter registration database, in which the Russians obtained names, addresses, partial social security numbers, dates of birth, and driver’s license numbers for approximately 500,000 Illinoisans.

SB 2273 modifies existing law to stop Illinois from sharing voter data with the Interstate Crosscheck system, which is riddled with security holes, according to research by Indivisible Chicago and others. As written, SB 2273 would allow Illinois to exclusively share voter data with either the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) or through one-on-one agreements with bordering states for the purpose of maintaining voter rolls as citizens move in or out of the state.

Upon passage of SB 2273, Governor Rauner called the bill “troubling”, indicating his support of the state’s use of Crosscheck and suggesting he prefers to ignore the system’s security vulnerabilities. At least eight other states have abandoned the voluntary Crosscheck program, citing these security gaps, a blatant lack of accuracy, and the amount of manpower required to parse through bad data. Illinois participation in ERIC fulfills the objective to maintain accurate voter rolls, with modern security protocols and a greater degree of accuracy.

“I’m hopeful that our Governor now sees the risks of exposing our voter data in a new light and will sign SB 2273,” said Steve Held, one of the leaders of the Indivisible Chicago team fighting for data privacy protections and voter rights. “As we learn more about the scope of the 2016 hacks, it’s time to put partisanship aside and take election security and data privacy seriously. Illinois has already been the largest victim of state election hacks; it would be reckless to continue along the same path by sharing our data with those who have proven they are unable to secure it.”

The Sun-Times Editorial Board recently urged Governor Rauner to sign SB 2273 citing, “The system’s data, not always rigorously accurate, has been cited by the administration to make specious claims of voter fraud, justifying anti-democratic limits on voter registration.”

Crosscheck is ostensibly used by election officials as an additional source to maintain voter rolls; however, it has been plagued by a series of security vulnerabilities which has resulted in the suspension of the program while the Department of Homeland Security conducts a security audit following the release of voters’ private information. Crosscheck is managed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who was chosen by President Trump as the vice chairman and spokesperson for his failed commission on voter fraud, and last spring was held in contempt by a federal judge for failing to notify thousands of Kansans in 2016 that they were registered to vote.

Background

Crosscheck is a program created and operated by Kansas election officials. It collects voter registration information from participating states and “crosschecks” the data to find duplicate registrations. This program is the primary source for Kobach and Trump when citing “millions of illegal voters”. Yet, the program’s algorithm to identify illegal voters has been widely discredited and Kansas authorities who oversee the program have refused to take basic steps to improve the accuracy of the results. Therefore, Crosscheck generates intentionally-inflated statistics that exaggerate the instances of actual voter fraud by a factor of over 1,000.

Recent research by Indivisible Chicago has exposed numerous security flaws and raised questions about how the data is used. This includes:

  • Usernames and passwords to critical systems and encrypted files emailed in plain text;
  • A lack of encryption protocols for the server used to transmit and store 100 million voter records; and,
  • A misconfigured firewall protecting this voter data is misconfigured.

Illinois is among 25 states that share personal information such as date of birth and partial social security numbers directly with Crosscheck, which puts voters at risk of identity theft. While the SBE has the authority to leave the Crosscheck program, a December vote on the question was defeated when all four Republican SBE Board Members voted to remain in the program. That’s when Indivisible Chicago intensified grassroots efforts to pass a state law to protect voter data from insecure, centralized databases such as Crosscheck.

Crosscheck is known to be misused by some participating states. Indiana currently faces multiple lawsuits alleging violations of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) based on their over reliance on Crosscheck, because the system is widely known to be highly inaccurate. Indiana purges voters from the rolls without sending proper cancellation notifications based solely on Crosscheck matches. Indiana purged over one million voters from the rolls between 2014 and 2016 and has purged over 500,000 voters since the 2016 election.

Indivisible Chicago is leading the call for every state, including Illinois, to withdraw from Crosscheck both to protect sensitive data that can lead to identity theft and as a moral stand against voter suppression efforts. To learn more and to join this fight, visit https://endcrosscheck.com.

Illinois "Very Likely" Named in Mueller Indictment

he state’s voter registration database was “very likely” targeted by Russian hackers charged by special counsel Robert Mueller with interfering in the 2016 presidential campaign, the Illinois State Board of Elections announced Friday.

A spokesman said the agency had not received confirmation from the U.S. Department of Justice, but believes Illinois’ elections board is referenced in the indictment released Friday as having the data of 500,000 voters stolen.

Chicago Sun-Times Urges Rauner to #EndCrosscheck

Data compiled by the 13-year-old Interstate Voter Crosscheck System has been weaponized by the Trump administration to suppress voter turnout. The system’s data, not always rigorously accurate, has been cited by the administration to make specious claims of voter fraud, justifying anti-democratic limits on voter registration. This legislation would require that Illinois use only the superior Electronic Registration Information Center — a strictly nonpartisan and more accurate service — to help local election officials update voter rolls when people move away.

ACLU Sues Kobach Over Data Breach

The American Civil Liberties Union is suing Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach over concerns that his Crosscheck voter program put the personal data of more than 900 Kansas voters at risk.

Officials with the advocacy group said Tuesday morning in Kansas City, Kan., that the class-action lawsuit has been filed in federal court. Kobach, the head election official in Kansas, is seeking the Republican nomination for governor.

Illinois House Passes Bill to End Crosscheck; Governor "troubled"

Gov. Bruce Rauner will get the final say on whether Illinois leaves a controversial multistate voter registration system amid concerns the database was inaccurate and vulnerable to hackers.

The House on Thursday voted to end the state's participation in the Crosscheck program, sending legislation to Rauner's desk. But his spokeswoman called it a "troubling vote," a possible suggestion he won't sign it.

Activists Mobilize to Win Passage in House

Applaud Senate’s Quick Action to Secure Voter Data

Attention is focused now on the Illinois House, after today’s Senate approval of a bill to protect Illinois voter data by pulling the state out of the national Crosscheck program. The final vote on SB2273, drafted with the help of Indivisible Chicago broke down along party lines 35-17 with 3 Republicans abstaining. The bill will now head to the House where Representative Ann Williams will be the chief sponsor.

“This is fantastic news. It’s heartening to see our legislators move so quickly to protect voters’ privacy,” bsaid Steve Held, one of the leaders of the Indivisible Chicago team fighting for data privacy protections and voter rights. “It’s unfortunate to see partisanship impact this vote at a time when the vulnerability of our voter data and concerns about identity theft have never been clearer; however, we’re hopeful that we’ll see more bipartisan support in the House.”

Indivisible Chicago thanks the initial bill sponsors, Senators Kwame Raoul and Bill Cunningham, as well as those who have joined as co-sponsors, for moving so quickly on this issue.

The Senate approval comes against a backdrop of other states quitting the Crosscheck program. They’re responding to increasing evidence that Crosscheck leaves voters vulnerable to identity theft through the insecure handling of sensitive data. In just this past month:

  • Both Massachusetts and Kentucky have recently announced that they are abandoning the Crosscheck program.

  • Missouri, one of the original founding states in Crosscheck, announced that they are joining the ERIC program to maintain voter roll.

  • Florida election officials acknowledged that the personal data for nearly 1,000 Kansans was compromised as a result of their participation in the Crosscheck program, prompting Florida to offer to pay for LifeLock protection to all impacted Kansans. This data had been shared with a Kansas-based Voters Against Crosscheck as a result of a public records request and subsequently shared with Indivisible Chicago.

  • After months of assurances from Kansas Secretary of State Kobach and Director of Elections Bryan Caskey that Kansas’ systems were secure, Netragard, a security research firm found that the Kansas government’s network was “significantly exposed”, posing a risk to all Kansas systems, including the Crosscheck database.

  • Gizmodo reported the careless exposure of the last four digits of social security numbers for thousands of Kansas state employees, including 90% of Kansas legislators and Secretary Kobach himself.

Kansas Director of Elections Bryan Caskey recently stated that Crosscheck would again be operational sometime in February but hasn’t provided any details about planned changes to the programs security.

Pulling out of Crosscheck doesn’t mean Illinois will be ill equipped to manage voter data, according to Held.

“Illinois is in the much more secure national ERIC program, along with 22 others,” he said. “We have the necessary tools to maintain our voter rolls. Proponents for Crosscheck are simply pursuing a highly partisan agenda to perpetuate debunked myths about voter fraud and to further an agenda of voter suppression. It’s time to end this charade and get on with the serious business of protecting the integrity of our electoral process.”

Efforts to persuade the Illinois State Board of Elections to voluntarily pull data from Crosscheck have been unsuccessful, with a vote earlier this month breaking out along party lines, and all Republican members voting “no”. In an email to Indivisible Chicago after that SBE Board meeting, SBE Public Information Officer Matt Dietrich confirmed no voter data would be sent until any security changes are assessed and discussed in a public SBE Board meeting. The SBE’s next monthly Board meeting is scheduled for February 21.

Illinois Bill Moving Forward To Pull Out of Controversial Crosscheck

Illinois Legislators Urged to Act Quickly to Secure Voter Files

State lawmakers have set a public hearing date for legislation to protect Illinois voter data by pulling state voter data out of the national Crosscheck program. The hearing on SB2273, crafted in partnership between Indivisible Chicago and state lawmakers, is scheduled for January 30, 1:30pm in Springfield.

“We urge legislators to move quickly to close this door to protect Illinois voters’ personal data. The news out of Kansas, responsible for protecting this sensitive data, gets worse on a weekly basis. It’s abundantly clear that the Kansas Secretary of State’s office lacks the will and the expertise to secure their systems”, said Steve Held, one of the leaders of the Indivisible Chicago team fighting voter suppression.

Indivisible Chicago has been at the forefront of national research that has revealed extensive flaws in the security measures that are supposed to protect personal data for millions of voters in Illinois and across the country. The activist organization is encouraging Illinois voters to call on lawmakers to protect their data by filing a witness proponent slip in support of this legislation. This can be done in just a few minutes, using this link and marking the slip as “proponent”: SB2273 Witness Slip.

Indivisible Chicago commends initial bill sponsors Senators Kwame Raoul and Bill Cunningham, as well as those who have joined, and is urging more legislators to sign on as co-sponsors to expedite passage of this bill.

The hearing is scheduled against a backdrop of increasing evidence that Crosscheck leaves voters vulnerable to identity theft through the insecure handling of sensitive data. In just this past month:

Illinois Legislators Urged to Act Quickly to Secure Voter Files

National Crosscheck database struggles with data security, misses self-imposed deadline

Warning that vulnerabilities in the Interstate “Crosscheck” program are more extensive than election officials have admitted, voter rights activists at Indivisible Chicago are praising the Illinois State Board of Elections (SBE) for confirming that no voter data will be sent to the “Crosscheck” program in January as originally planned. The voter rights activists are urging the SBE to hold firm as the Kansas officials in charge of securing the national Crosscheck voter database continue to struggle with security fixes that will protect 100 million voters’ personal data.

In December, Kansas officials assured participating states that they would have the opportunity to review details about proposed security fixes by the end of the year, with a plan to discuss on January 4th. “As of this date, we have received no description of security enhancements from Crosscheck”, said Steve Sandvoss, the SBE’s Executive Director in a January 10 letter to State legislators. “We plan to review and discuss those proposed enhancements upon receipt and we will transmit no data to Crosscheck until security issues are addressed to our satisfaction.”

In an email to Indivisible Chicago after yesterday’s SBE Board meeting, SBE Public Information Officer Matt Dietrich confirmed no voter data would be sent until any security changes are assessed and discussed in a public SBE Board meeting. The SBE Board meets monthly.

“Our research exposes the risks to Illinois voters if their personal data is sent to Crosscheck before serious security breaches are repaired,” said Steve Held, one of the leaders of the Indivisible Chicago team fighting voter suppression. “This delay indicates administrators are incapable of fixing this flawed system. That’s why we’re calling on Illinois legislators to take advantage of this time to remove Illinois from the Crosscheck voter suppression system.”

A bill to do just that has been introduced by Senators Kwame Raoul and Bill Cunningham. Indivisible Chicago is urging more legislators to sign on to SB 2273 to expedite its passage.
