Voter transparency site adds largest state to date -- Texas
Mar 7, 2022

by Voter Reference Foundation

DOWNERS GROVE, IL —, a public website dedicated to voter and election data compiled by the Voter Reference Foundation (VRF), added Texas to the public site.
As the 19th state added to the database, Texas will join Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Virginia, and Wisconsin. The database now includes just under half of the country’s population.
Full transparency into election records and results is needed to restore faith in our elections process. The work being done by VRF continues to highlight the need to ensure accurate voter rolls are being maintained, and to provide the public access to these rolls so that they may search the data and report errors to election officials.
The process of reviewing certified election data in each state begins with a comparison of the records of ballots cast as reported by local election officials with the voter history compiled by the state for the 2020 election.
Discrepancies in this comparison have been found to be as low as 42 in North Carolina and as high as tens of thousands in other states — with more data coming in each week. VRF will continue to add to the database as they receive reports, with the goal of completing all 50 states in 2022.
Texas is one of the largest states added to the VoteRef database to date, representing the addition of over 20 million voter records. The discrepancy in TX is 119,164 or 1.06%.

Texas | 119,164

Connecticut | 37,256

Idaho | 11,147
Michigan | 74,135
Minnesota | 48,328
Montana | 1,896
Nevada | 8,952
New Jersey | (37,944)
New Mexico | 3,844
North Carolina | (42)
Ohio | 22,425
Oregon | 31,619
South Dakota | 4,735

“The discrepancy between the number of voters who cast a ballot according to their vote history and the total number of ballots cast in Texas and in all the states whose certified election data we have acquired needs to be explained. The Voter Reference Foundation is aware that voters move, and they pass away, and we understand that the voter rolls change daily. That said, election officials must reconcile the data to account for the total numbers of these ‘movers’ and deaths and provide that data to the public to ensure transparency and accountability in our elections process,” said Gina Swoboda, Executive Director of VRF.

They also will be able to examine voter histories -- a list of elections that voters participated in, as well as other important election data obtained via official sources.
The VRF was created by Restoration Action, an educational 501c4 organization founded by West Point graduate and successful entrepreneur Doug Truax. A former U.S. Senate candidate in Illinois, Truax is deeply interested in election integrity, as expressed in this 2021 op-ed in American Greatness and 2022 follow-up op-ed in Real Clear Politics.
