According to data released by Judicial Watch, out of 11 counties in California, 10 have more registered voters than there are actually people eligible to vote. Could this be a massive case of voter fraud? Sure it could. But it could also be that the administrators actually looking after this are incompetent or lazy.
The fact that California is refusing to cooperate with a Voter Roll Integrity investigation is worrying. It could suggest any number of issues…but by abiding with the investigation, they could then work to improve the accuracy of their information.
If any other state government department had these kinds of errors, would there be some kind of investigation for fraud or incompetence? Refusal to cooperate just makes them look worse, if not even guilty.
Electoral integrity is one of the most important things a government can take care of…It gives them legitimacy. And those that refuse to abide by the rules have no place governing.
There’s no voter fraud. Nope none at all…
There are just more registered voters than there are people who are eligible to vote in 10 of 11 counties in California.
Included within those counties?
San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego.
What do those ten have in common?
They all voted for Hillary Clinton.
Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog organization, has sent a letter to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla on behalf of the Election Integrity Project, noting that there are 11 counties in the state with more registered voters, and alleging that the state may be out of compliance with Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
The letter reads, in part:
NVRA Section 8 requires states to conduct reasonable list maintenance so as to maintain an accurate record of eligible voters for use in conducting federal elections.1 As you may know, Congress enacted Section 8 of the NVRA to protect the integrity of the electoral process. Allowing the names of ineligible voters to remain on the voting rolls harms the integrity of the electoral process and undermines voter confidence in the legitimacy of elections.
According to Gateway Pundit:
In June California Secretary of State Alex Padilla told the Trump administration the state will not cooperate with the election integrity commission because it would “only serve to legitimize the false and already debunked claims of massive voter fraud.”
Now, there are a couple of reasons apart from voter fraud that one might have that.
There’s failure to keep the list current and not purging the ineligibles.
But not doing that allows for problems, such as the dead voting.
Dead voting sounds pretty much like voter fraud to me.
Obviously, they are not keeping a good record of who are eligible voters are which means that non-eligible people can slip by.
So unless they are actually keeping a current list, they have no right to criticize others trying to clean up the system.
