We Have More Voters Than Living Residents
A new report by the Public Interest Legal Foundation puts 141 counties on notice across the United States for having more registered voters than people alive in those counties. The public interest law firm is dedicated to bringing integrity to the election process, have sent these notice letters to officials in 21 states, which is step one before step two, which is bringing a lawsuit against those counties under the National Voter Registration Act.
The NVRA requires that all election officials maintain current voter registration lists and ensure that only eligible voters are registered to vote. President and General Counsel of the Public Interest Legal Foundation J. Christian Adams says, “Corrupted voter rolls provide the perfect environment for voter fraud.” Close elections tainted by voter fraud turned control of the United States Senate in 2009. Too much is at stake in 2016 to allow that to happen again.”
The worst offender on the list is Michigan with 24 counties. Kentucky comes in second with 18, Illinois with 17, Alabama and Colorado with 10 to round out the top 5.
The worst county on the list is Franklin County in Illinois with a registration rate of 190%.
