UNITED STATES−The state of California and at least four other states are in violation of Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.
Judicial Watch indicated in a press release, that they have sent notice-of-violation letters to 19 counties in five different states including: California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Virginia.
The letters state that Judicial Watch intends to sue if the prospective states fail to comply with the law by removing ineligible voter registrations within 90 days. Judicial Watch indicated on their website that the state of Kentucky removed over 250,000 inactive voters, and noted, “There’s still more to be done.”
Despite successful litigation and efforts to bring to bring counties and states across the country into compliance with the National Voter Registration Act, Judicial Watch noted voter registration lists across the country remain out of date.
According to analysis of data released by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, this year there are 378 counties nation wide that have more people registered to vote than they have living, and eligible to vote. Of the 378 counties, there are 2.5 million registrants exceeding the 100 percent mark of the population. This data is down by one million since Judicial Watch’s last analysis.
San Diego County has dropped 500,000 inactive names off of their voting rolls following Judicial Watch’s settlement with Los Angeles County. San Diego County holds the highest registration rate in the country, at 117 percent.
Canyon Nws reached out to the offices of San Diego County regarding voting issues, but did not hear back in time for print.
