Judicial Watch is suing to have a federal law requiring the maintenance of clean voter rolls and reporting of their status followed in California. Warnings were sent to 11 other
Judicial Watch revealed on Wednesday that they have filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles County and the State of California due to their failure to maintain clean voter rolls and to produce election-related documents which are required under the federal National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
The lawsuit was filed jointly by Judicial Watch, Election Integrity Project, Inc, and 4 individuals lawfully registered to vote in Los Angeles County in US District Court.
The suit alleges that the State of California and eleven of its 58 counties, including Los Angeles, have more registered voters than they do age-eligible citizens. Los Angeles has a voter registration rate of 112%, clearly there is a problem with their voter rolls. Statewide the percentage is 101%.
Judicial Watch notes that a major contributing factor to the over-registration are inactive registrations, with California having the largest percentage of inactive registrations in the nation and Los Angeles County the highest in the state at over 20% of all registrations.
While one might think that inactive registrations, which are generally purged from rolls after two general federal elections, are no problem due to their inactive nature, the reality is that they can still be used to vote. California, in keeping with their policy of enabling voter fraud, such as with illegal alien driver’s licenses being part of “motor voter,” is refusing to clean up its rolls.
Judicial Watch notes that inactive registrations are “inherently vulnerable to abuse by voters who plan to fraudulently double-vote in two different jurisdictions on the same election day.”
In the summer of 2016, Judicial Watch sent a request for voter roll records that are required by the NVRA to be kept and made publicly available to Los Angeles County and the State of California. It was not replied to and Judicial Watch isn’t buying into the notion that there were no responsive records.
Judicial Watch simultaneously created their own test by virtue of the submission of their request. There are over five million voters in Los Angeles County. To believe that no communications between the Secretary of State’s office and all California County voter registration officials concerning the matter is not credible.
Yet Judicial Watch’s request for “all email or other communications between the Secretary’s Office and all California County voter registration officials concerning . . . instructions to the counties concerning their general list maintenance practices and obligations” and notices to the counties concerning any failure to comply with their voter list maintenance obligations” produced nothing, not even correspondence related to their letter.
Judicial Watch is asking that the court prohibit LA County and California from further violations of the law and order them to “develop and implement a general program that makes a reasonable effort to remove from Los Angeles County’s rolls the registrations of ineligible registrants.” Judicial Watch has also asked to inspect and copy the requested voter roll documents.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said, “California may have the dirtiest election rolls in the country. Federal law requires states to take reasonable steps to clean up their voting rolls. Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections. This lawsuit aims to ensure that citizens of California can have more confidence that their elections are fair and honest.”
Judicial Watch is also threatening similar actions in 11 other states with more voters than voting-age citizens, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Tennessee. Democrats have to have a way to win elections. Cheating, lying, wealth redistribution and fraud are the only things that work for them.
