Alarming! 100%+ voter registration rates

136 counties in 21 states have more registered voters than adult residents

True the Vote, the nation’s leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, has announced its latest findings in an ongoing effort to reduce outdated records in America’s voter rolls.

136 counties in 21 states were given notices of potential violation of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, requiring election officials to make reasonable efforts to maintain voter rolls. Counties in receipt are demonstrated to have more than 100 percent voter registration at the time of the 2014 Election and have not indicated any significant effort to address the problem in the months following.

“It’s important that engaged voters keep the pressure on election officials to ensure that outdated or ineligible records are quickly addressed,” True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. “Bloated voter rolls hurt everyone. Deceased voters aren’t removed, duplicate registrations aren’t revoked and the records of voters who’ve relocated aren’t corrected. Low verification standards, like absence of voter ID, add to the confusion.”

“Bloated rolls create the ideal environment for identity theft and voter fraud.  With the U.S. Justice Department still refusing to set a national standard and enforce federal maintenance requirements, we’re now starting to see entire states come close to showing over 100 percent registration,” Engelbrecht added.

Key Highlights:

  • Who’s the Worst: Kentucky, Michigan and Indiana lead the nation in counties with 100% plus voter registration rates with more than 10 each (total voter registration rate per state)
  • Kentucky – 94%
  • Michigan – 95%
  • Indiana – 92%
  • Becoming an Urban Problem: Larger, suburban counties in Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan without a history of 100% plus rates are now over the line
  • 2016: The states represented in this most recent finding account for 305 Electoral College votes –a landslide total

Counties in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia received pre-litigation notices. True the Vote has requested that the counties outline efforts to remove dead, felon, moved or otherwise ineligible voters ahead of the 2016 election season to avoid litigation.

This latest research finding builds upon a body of work that has led to lawsuits against the States of Indiana and Ohio to update voter rolls in 2012.

Seeing Red AZ has addressed the issue of voter fraud several times over the past years. This post,  Voter fraud? “We’re not the police” contains links and a video that are valuable resources on this crucial issue as we head into the 2016 election cycle.

    That Arizona is named in this report is disturbing, but hardly surprising given the ballot harvesting uncovered by former Maricopa County Republican chairman, A. J. LaFaro.

    Our elected officials must lmake looking into this a priority isince Arizona made the suspect list and the important 2016 elections are just around the corner. The Secretary of State is the place to start, since that office is charged with providing “trustworthy, secure elections.” Michele Reagan serves as Chief Election Officer for the State.

    Apache County is the worst offender and Anne Kirkpatrick along with her buddy, the county recorder, have much to do with that fact.

  4. Joseph Bickley, Sr. says:

    That Maricopa County has “Bloated voter rolls . . . Deceased voters aren’t removed, duplicate registrations aren’t revoked and the records of voters who’ve relocated aren’t corrected.” is a prime reason why County Recorder Helen Purcell needs to replaced this election year. Unlike previous elections she has a strong opponent who can make the changes necessary.

  5. Conservative Since Birth says:

    When we moved from one county in AZ to Maricopa County, I called the Registrar’s office to notify them to remove our names from the voting rolls. She said – oh, don’t worry about it – Maricopa Country will notify us. Hmmm I wonder if that’s true.

    This is a subject that sends chills up my spine. If there’s a way for Democrats to take advantage, they will. I don’t understand why the GOP doesn’t make this an issue and do something about it.

  6. Observer says:

    The Arizona Daily Independent posted the video and the verbal exchange that took when a ballot stuffing Hispanic activist was confronted by AJ LaFaro.

      We need to have a quality man like A. J. LaFaro replace state GOP chairman Robert Graham—the star player for Team McCain, who is currently working overtime to deceive conservatives.
