What voter fraud? THIS voter fraud!

All those who contend that there’s no voter fraud problem in the USA should read this report.

According to a new study of U.S. Census data, America has more registered voters than actual live voters. It’s a troubling fact that puts our nation’s future in peril.

The data come from Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Project. The group looked at data from 2011 to 2015 produced by the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, along with data from the federal Election Assistance Commission.

As reported by the National Review’s Deroy Murdock, who did some numbers-crunching of his own, “some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud.”

Murdock counted Judicial Watch’s state-by-state tally and found that 462 U.S. counties had a registration rate exceeding 100% of all eligible voters. That’s 3.552 million people, who Murdock calls “ghost voters.” And how many people is that? There are 21 states that don’t have that many people.

Nor are these tiny, rural counties or places that don’t have the wherewithal to police their voter rolls.

California, for instance, has 11 counties with more registered voters than actual voters. Perhaps not surprisingly — it is deep-Blue State California, after all — 10 of those counties voted heavily for Hillary Clinton.

Los Angeles County, whose more than 10 million people make it the nation’s most populous county, had 12% more registered voters than live ones, some 707,475 votes. That’s a huge number of possible votes in an election.

But, Murdock notes, “California’s San Diego County earns the enchilada grande. Its 138% registration translates into 810,966 ghost voters.”

State by state, this is an enormous problem that needs to be dealt with seriously. Having so many bogus voters out there is a temptation to voter fraud.

There’s more at the link.

If you expect me to believe that fully three and a half million ‘ghost voters’ somehow got onto electoral rolls by ‘accident’ . . . particularly when they’re almost exclusively concentrated in districts hewing to the left-wing/progressive side of the electoral divide . . . then I have this bridge in Brooklyn, NYC that I’d like to sell you.  Cash only, please, and in small bills.

Couple that with an earlier report that millions of illegal aliens probably cast ballots in the 2016 election, and you have a recipe for disaster.

I hope and trust that President Trump’s Electoral Integrity Commission will find a solution to this problem.  Certainly, it can’t be allowed to persist through the 2018 elections.  It needs to be dealt with now – otherwise our democracy will be in serious danger.



  1. I'd guess a lot of those probably are due to incompetence, not malice. People move away and their registration isn't eliminated. That would also make sense why California seems to have a large number. That said, it wouldn't surprise me if those residual registrations are actively being used by the left.

  2. Simple solution (that, of course, won't be done because it's "racist") is:

    All voter registrations, without exception, are invalidated, necessitating everyone re-registering. No "motor voter" registration accepted, must apply in person with proof of citizenship and residency (ie, no "get out the vote" drives by political parties or service groups). US Military tasked to handle registration of all members in their residence of record, all non-Military responsible for their own. And registration will remain good for one electoral cycle only – ie, you need to sign up again, with the same proof of citizenship and residency, every 4 years.

    And you need a matching photo ID whenever you show up to vote, whereupon you get an indelible stamp on your hand to prevent fraud. You may request absentee ballots, in person, on showing the same ID, one election at a time (again, the military to handle that for active-service members). If you requested an absentee ballot you may not vote in person unless you surrender your absentee ballot at the polls and it's destroyed before you are given the new ballot.

    I can guarantee several effects if this was actually tried: registered voters will probably fluctuate somewhere between 60-80% of eligible voters overall, much lower in some districts. Party primaries – for both parties – will suddenly get more competitive. And areas of the country like LA county that are now overwhelmingly Blue will continue to vote that way, but by much smaller overall percentages, while areas of the country that traditionally vote Red will continue to do so with almost no fluctuation in the vote breakdown.

    Too bad that the chances of this actually being done are up there with winning the lottery.

  3. I'm not sure whatever came of it, but in deep South Texas (the counties bordering or near Mexico), there were suspicious number of centenarians allegedly on the voter rolls which were not in line with statistical norms.

  4. To add to what Mike said, it wouldn't surprise me to find Illinois right up there (down there?) with California, inasmuch as CA and IL have had, IIRC, the greatest amount of net out-migration among the states.

    I'm not sure, though, that either "malice" or "incompetence" quite fit what may have happened w/r/t registrations that should have been purged: how's about "malignant neglect"?

  5. And they all voted for Hillary. She did win the popular vote by about that amount. Illinois, California and New York would be the leaders.

  6. We always think of voter fraud in terms of putting Dems in office. I think there is another facet. Last election saw California vote to increase cigarette taxes by a dollar per pack. It saw Californians ban free grocery bags in favor of forcing markets to SELL them at a dime a piece. It saw Californians turn a working medical marijuana program into a tax revenue cash cow for Sacramento. I realize that this is small sample fallacy, but No One, right or left, I have talked to thinks any of these laws is anything like a good idea. How often do people vote for more taxation and more government control? Not even here in LaLa land. I'm guessing that some entity that will profit by these laws has pulling a string. Or two.
