Steve Tingley-Hock is not somebody used to being at the center of a scandal. The former database administrator, who lives in a small town in Ohio, first began running queries on voter data in order to learn new database software. But what started as a side project made national headlines in 2019, when his work exposed a 40,000 voter purge error in a list released by Ohio’s Secretary of State.
VICE met up with Steve in his Marysville Ohio to learn about his unlikely path and why he continues to dedicate his days to running queries on voter rolls around the country, in order to make sure nobody is wrongfully losing their right to vote.
