If you thought Judicial Watch was only doing Freedom of Information Act requests to get the federal government’s deepest secrets divulged, you would be wrong.
Last week the Washington, DC based conservative legal watchdog announced it had won a federal lawsuit that now forces Los Angeles County to clean up its voter rolls.
From Judicial Watch (hat tip: Chris):
Judicial Watch announced on January 3 that it signed a settlement agreement with the State of California and County of Los Angeles under which they will begin the process of removing from their voter registration rolls as many as 1.5 million inactive registered names that may be invalid. These removals are required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
The NVRA is a federal law requiring the removal of inactive registrations from the voter rolls after two general federal elections (encompassing from 2 to 4 years). Inactive voter registrations belong, for the most part, to voters who have moved to another county or state or have passed away.
Los Angeles County has over 10 million residents, more than the populations of 41 of the 50 United States. California is America’s largest state, with almost 40 million residents.
In its lawsuit, Judicial Watch alleged:
~Los Angeles County has more voter registrations on its voter rolls than it has citizens who are old enough to register. Specifically, according to data provided to and published by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, Los Angeles County has a registration rate of 112 percent of its adult citizen population.
~The entire State of California has a registration rate of about 101 percent of its age-eligible citizenry.
~Eleven of California’s 58 counties have registration rates exceeding 100 percent of the age-eligible citizenry.
Here is a 20 minute video in which Senior Attorney & Director of JW’s Election Integrity Project Robert Popper explains how they won.
Read the press release because you will see that JW has successfully sued, or is suing, other states!
Have you thought about checking with your county election board and asking them if they are cleaning up their voter rolls?
