RNC Fires Voter Registration Company, Suspends Drive in Swing States

Finding it difficult to conduct voter registration drives without yielding fake names and other issues they often define as voter fraud


The Republican National Committee ended efforts to sign up new voters before the deadline in key states for the presidential race because of questions raised over registration applications tied to the party.

Republican parties in Florida, Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia—all states that both campaigns view as competitive—fired Glen Allen, Virginia-based Strategic Allied Consulting, the company in charge of registrations, said Kirsten Kukowski, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee. The national committee also canceled its contract with the company, its only vendor signing up new voters, Kukowski said.
