Is voter fraud an issue – expunging voter rolls?

Voter Fraud

Real Clear Politics – Eight states, as well as the District of Columbia, have total voter registration tallies exceeding 100% of the voting-age population. Huh? How can this be, we have been told that voter fraud is non-existent?

Los Angeles County may be the worst offender. Ten out of the state’s 58 counties also have registration rates exceeding 100% of the voting-age population. This echoes a 2012 Pew study that found that 24 million voter registrations in the United States, about one out of every eight, are “no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate” – this is 12.5% of all voters. This was in 2012, and it could be even worse now!

The ground-breaking examination of the nation’s voter rolls, commissioned by Pew and undertaken by RTI International, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research institute, also finds that:

  • At least 51 million eligible citizens remain unregistered – more than 24% of the eligible population.
  • Nearly 2 million deceased individuals are listed as voters.
  • Approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.
  • About 12 million records have incorrect addresses, meaning either the voters moved, or errors in the information make it unlikely any mailings can reach them.

Automatic voter registration is gaining traction quickly in the states. Since March 2015, fifteen states plus the District of Columbia have authorized the policy, which is now “considered” the gold standard of modernized registration – applying for a driver’s license, automatically register to vote. Could an illegal alien automatically get registered? Then there is the issue of online voter registration (now done in 38 states). Can these voter registrations be defrauded? No, of course not we have been told.

Another state that stands out is Kentucky, where the voter registration rate in 48 of its 120 counties exceeded 100% last year. We may have witnessed a stolen election in Kentucky – are you surprised given the voter laws that are in play? CNBC – Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear pulled off an upset victory over Republican Gov. Matt Bevin.

Previously Kentucky did try to clean up their voter rolls but to no avail. The Kentucky Democratic Party won a lawsuit to restore 175,000 voters from an “inactive” list to the regular rolls. Hmm, enabling fraud? The following is an interesting take on the Kentucky election where the Republican candidate only lost by less than 5,000 votes – Was The Kentucky Election Stolen?
Then there is the issue in Kentucky, that though many voted Republican for other positions, but they did not vote for Republican governor? It seems fishy that there is no consistancy in the vote statistics.

Now some believe that having proper voter registration laws with clean voter rolls somehow disaffects minorities. But this presumes that minorities are somehow less capable than others. Is this not the bigotry of low expectations of minorities. RFS1 thinks better of minorities – just make laws clean that apply to all equally – then enforce them.

Now RFS1 does not want any legal voter to be denied their constitutional rights to vote, but it must be done legally. We need to have sensible and voter laws to ensure this happens. Otherwise, do we really have a functioning representative republic that we can all trust?
