The Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program
The Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program, also known by the nickname The Kansas
Project, was initiated in Kansas
in 2005 under Kansas
State Ron Thornburgh when Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri agreed to share voter registration data. The first interstate crosscheck was in 2006. When current Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach assumed office in 2011, the number of states participating had grown to 14.
