ThinkProgress: Massive security risks discovered in Kris Kobach’s voter registration database

New documents show the Interstate Crosscheck Program doesn't secure sensitive voter data.

Administrators of the voter registration database used by 32 states and run by Kris Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state and the co-chair of President Trump’s Commission on Voter Integrity, are emailing passwords and using unencrypted servers, according to newly released documents. These basic security vulnerabilities are leaving sensitive voter information open to the public and potentially hackers

Indivisible Chicago, a branch of the national resistance organization, obtained documents showing that the Interstate Crosscheck Program — a program that compares voter registration databases across states for duplicate voters — is administered in a way that exposes voters’ names, addresses, and in some states, social security numbers, to security breaches.
