Authored by Mike Shedlock via,

The Election Integrity Project California provides a list of 11 California counties that have more registered voters than voting-age citizens.

In addition, Los Angeles County officials informed the project that “the number of registered voters now stands at a number that is a whopping 144% of the total number of resident citizens of voting age.”

The Election Integrity Project California, Inc. has joined Judicial Watch, Inc., a non-partisan organization in Washington, D.C., in sending a National Voter Registration Act (“NVRA”) Section 8 notice of violation letter to California Secretary of State, Alex Padilla.

NVRA Complaint Excerpts

Dear Secretary Padilla:


From public records obtained on the Election Assistance Commission (“EAC”) 2016 Election Administration Voting Survey (“EAVS”), and through verbal accounts from various county agencies, eleven (11) counties in California have more total registered voters than citizen voting age population (CVAP) calculated by the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2011-2015 American Community Survey. This is strong circumstantial evidence that California municipalities are not conducting reasonable voter registration list maintenance as mandated under the NVRA.


This letter serves as statutory notice that Election Integrity Project California, Inc., a registered non-profit corporation in California, and Judicial Watch, Inc., will bring a lawsuit against you and, if appropriate, against the counties named in this letter, if you do not take specific actions to correct these violations of Section 8 within 90 days.


The following information explains how we determined that your state and the counties named are in violation of NVRA Section 8 and the remedial steps that must be taken to comply with the law.


1. Eleven California Counties Have More Total Registered Voters Than Citizen Voting Age Population

Based on our review of 2016 EAC EAVS report, the 2011-2015 U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, and the most recent California total active and total inactive voter registration records, California is failing to comply with the voter registration list maintenance requirements of Section 8 of the NVRA. For example, a comparison of the 2011-2015 U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, and the most recent California active and inactive voter registration records shows there were more total registered voters than there were adults over the age of 18 living in each of the following eleven (11) counties: Imperial (102%), Lassen (102%), Los Angeles (112%), Monterey (104%), San Diego (138%), San Francisco (114%), San Mateo (111%), Santa Cruz (109%), Solano (111%), Stanislaus (102%), and Yolo (110%). Our own research shows that the situation in these counties is, if anything, worse than the foregoing data suggest. For example, we contacted Los Angeles County directly this past June. At that time, county officials informed us that the total number of registered voters now stands at a number that is a whopping 144% of the total number of resident citizens of voting age.


2. The NVRA Requires You to Undertake Reasonable Efforts to Maintain Accurate Lists of Eligible Registered Voters


3. Failure to Comply with NVRA Subjects You to Lawsuits and Financial Costs

In passing the NVRA, Congress authorized a private right of action to enforce the provisions of the NVRA, including Section 8. Accordingly, private persons may bring a lawsuit under the NVRA if the violations identified herein are not corrected within 90 days of receipt of this letter.


4. Avoiding Litigation

We hope you will promptly initiate efforts to comply with Section 8 so that no lawsuit will be necessary. We ask you and, to the extent that they wish to respond separately, each county identified in this letter, to please respond to this letter in writing no later than 30 days from today informing us of the compliance steps you are taking. Specifically, we ask you to: (1) conduct or implement a systematic, uniform, nondiscriminatory program to remove from the list of eligible voters the names of persons who have become ineligible to vote by reason of a change in residence; and (2) conduct or implement additional routine measures to remove from the list of eligible voters the names of persons who have become ineligible to vote by reason of death, change in residence, or a disqualifying criminal conviction, and to remove noncitizens who have registered to vote unlawfully.


5. Production of Records

Finally, pursuant to your obligations under the NVRA,15 your office and, to the extent that they keep records separately from your office, each county named in this letter, should make available to us all pertinent records concerning “the implementation of programs and activities conducted for the purpose of ensuring the accuracy and currency” of California’s official eligible voter lists during the past 2 years. Please include these records with your response to this letter.


I hope that the concerns identified in this letter can be resolved amicably. However, if we believe you do not intend to correct the above-identified problems, a federal lawsuit seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against you may be necessary. We look forward to receiving your prompt response.

Key Questions

  1. How bad is actual fraud vs. possible fraud?
  2. How much is purposeful fraud (letting noncitizens) on the voter rolls?
  3. How often do the dead and nonresidents vote?

I'm actually starting to enjoy the newbie leftists trolls. I lol at comments like this one.... and everyone around me looks at me like "what the fuck are you laughing at?" I guess they aren't used to me laughing out loud!

I need more laughter in my life!

You wart inducing, amphibian fool! You of all ZHers should recognize how the community has dwindled to an intellectually decrepit group of propaganda fueled zombies. This website was once about resisting the system and the rejecting the shift towards corporatocracy and fascism. Now, it has devolved into a fringe based, republican propaganda outlet. I post ridiculous comments because the intellectuals have left. All who remain only understand primordial forms of communication. Hence, fuck you.

Do you live in California Fuck Wad? Stroll down to the local DMV and see who is there. Last time I was they had to get an English speaking employee to help me as the one I went to only spoke Spanish, Tagalog, Hindi and Russian I think. /s OK but it's not too far from the truth. Each applicant receives a voter registration card that AUTOMATICALY registers to vote in California unless they OPT OUT. If you believe there isn't significant voter fraud going on you probably believe there are still only 12 million illegal aliens in the country.

However I'm thinking you are immune to reason, but I feel there might be hope for you some day. After all you used the word corporatocracy...but for now Fuck You too (with a smiley).

Simplifiedfrisbee's picture

You are a fucking degenerate. Was your empirical based response meant to be convincing? LOL!!! Jesus have mercy on your worthless existence.

Scanderbeg's picture

Wow, look at this retarded commie newfag.

Anyway, if you live in CA you already know there's massive voter fraud. The CA form only asks to certify citizenship and the only thing they verify at polling places is if you live in the district. In Los Angeles the illegals peddle fake ID's and SS numbers on Wilshire & Alvarado and the police do nothing. I imagine SF and all the other big cities in CA are the same.

Now that they're giving them drivers licenses I wouldn't be surprised if this discrepancy is from newly registered illegals. It's not like the libfags would try to stop them.

Literally all they have to do is check a box and provide a fake SS number.

That's it. So if you don't think this is possible you're either a retard or full of shit. Not to mention the Dims are suppressing any real audit.

I wonder why?

True story about New Mexico  Immigration office. A Brit friend of mine went to the Albuquerque immigration office to work on his green card and work permit and nobody could understand his accent and kept trying to talk to him in spanish. Then they went to get the chinese interpreter. This guy is 6 foot 9 inches and so white he sunburns under 5 minutes in sun. Took him all day to get 1 hour of admin processing done.  He decided to become a citizen because it was easier that way.

I dont care too much about the republican "propaganda: -- its  shallow anyway,  its  the dirth of  quality articles and research,(Australian Womans Day does better and has pictures) plus the {banning}removed a whole very interesting area which could have  been kept tightly factual. Hence the readers comments have collapsed and most of the old clever ones gone. Assume it sold and Tylers long gone.

This used to be an amazing comment section with posts written by inspired minds.

OverTheHedge's picture

5 And a half years you have been with us; "the loser who always wins". And yet, I don't remember ever seeing  one of your comments, so you hardly made an impact.

Suggesting that this used to be the place for intellectual brilliance, but now all the great minds have gone, rather suggests that your mind is less than great, if you are still here. Zerohedge has changed hugely, as has the world, the internet, and the financial system (or at least our perception of it). Change is good. Embrace change, steer the dialogue, be part of the new growth.

Or just flail about and shout abuse like an alcoholic derelict in need of psychiatric treatment.

Are you winning yet, loser?

His name is now repeated only in hushed tones, in darkened rooms, with the door locked, the electric lights off, and the candles lit.

Mentioning his name now is like "messing with the PRIMAL FORCES of NATURE, Mr. Beale (AKA 'TheReplacement'), and I WON'T HAVE IT!"

Oh, FORGIVE ME, FRANCIS_MARION, for I have TRANSGRESSED! I'm not worthy...

Francis is still here although his name changes quite often because, well, Francis is Francis. 

I miss fonz.


MontgomeryScott's picture

What was the name of the ponzi douchebag that always hailed 'god Satoshi'?

GOD! HE was fun to toy with!

He always did the 'SHIT-CON', BITCHEZ' thing.

NO, it wasn't 'fonz' (I don't think).

'Fonz' didn't last very long (I barely remember it/him/her/it).

The Fifth of November is coming up again in 3 months.

Francis (bless his Katlick heart) is no longer with us (his new name is Sister Mary Elephant). CLASS, SHUT UP! (thank you)

Tell me it ain't TRUE!

Do you mean to tell me that there actually are deep-state PLANTS within the ZH comment blogs who are now being activated via long-buried memberships with multiple accounts whose sole purpose is to attempt to counter true news with bullshit propaganda ('fake news') in support of the DEEP-STATE; mere MINIONS sitting in mommy's basement in their underwear eating Cheetos and getting paid $.15 per character while checking out porn and wanking their little, girlish clit-sized winkies? The economy of their liquidity usage per once isn't worth it (half a bottle of sex lotion per drop of seminal fluid sans sperm).


TROLLS are very good for TARGET PRACTICE, you know. They can't move very fast, and for those who get in to long-range shooting, are fairly easy to spot at a distance.

BY THE WAY: the new Panther Arms DPMS LR-308 flat-top performed FLAWLESSLY. It's a TACK-DRIVER, ghost-ring iron sighted, at 100. The Ruger Elite 452 trigger assembly works very, VERY well.

I'll be working on optics and accuracy at 200, next time out. I guess that's 182 meters or so (a standard American city block is 528 feet, or 176 yards, or 161 meters or so). I won't be fucking with METRIC shit here (I'm going to try for a group of 3 within 10 inches).

NO, it's NOT a so-called 'microagression' (you 'precious, special, beautiful and unique snowflakes' such as 'Simpletonfrisbee', or you other feminized beta male 'Troops' here). I prefer the term 'MACRO-AGRESSION'.

Ms. Erable: You are NOT ALONE! I got your 'six'...

Yeah.  I think the old intellectual vanguard is long gone but I don't know where to.  Someone passed me a link that outted government surveillance and I ended up in the most god awful adventure of a lifetime.   I was kind of a bad boy but I have reformed now.  I would never repeat it, but me and government spooks get along OK now.  They even let me ride their magic carpet every once in a while.  Pretty amazing.  I figure it was from DARPA.


And it all started from the zero hedge comment section.

So if that's the case why are you posting?  Why do you care if everyone is discussing something that you feel isn't important?  Why try to impede the discussion?

Trump isn't going to MAGA.  He probably actually wants to, but he's not going to be able to.  He's too much of a statist for my tastes, but Hillary.  He's not going to be able to drain the swamp either, but he can do some damage there. If he does this, I'll be satisfied. 

TheReplacement's picture

If Trump is legit, and I am still far from convinved, then I think his resistance will serve as a distraction from the real problems (and solutions) thereby perpetuating the system.  If he's not then it is all an act and the clever bastards he's working with will reach for the same goal the same way.

At least Hitlary would have taken the country forward to collapse at full throttle so we could get this shit over with.

GoingBig's picture

i completely agree. 

Something has changed to this site over the past 6 or so years. Now it is a bunch of idiots who can't make sense of nonsense stories. Conspiracy theories rule the day, hate speach and anti semitism is rampant. There used to be guys on  here that would tell you what was actually happening in the markets on how to profit.  Now I would guess that half or more of the morons still believe the Seth Rich story, etc....  I am looking for that new site that ZH once was.....

There it is again - the new Shareblue strategy - claim you are a long time reader, but have a newer account.  


Judicial Watch must really be uncovering criminal behavior, because the Shareblue trolls are out in force.

I have been here since before the days you had to register.  I think the math questions kept the comments at a more sophisticated level.  Some of us like to change ID's every once in a while.

Antisemitism is new? You haven't been here that long. And it's not Antisemitism, it's merely pointing out certain unpopular facts about a certain segment of the population.  

We used to actually talk about those things here in depth. So much so that Tyler kept getting sued and had to put into place the anti discrimination policy that took out many long timers.

Yeah.  The noob  doesn't remember when zerohedge had their problem with the swiss government.

So fighting the Clintons and their pay to play slush fund disguised as a foundation isn't fighting coporatocracy?  The Clintons and Obama are on the speaking circuit making big money paid for by big corporations and foreign governments.  Do you think that Goldman Sachs and all the big corps are paying them just because they want to hear them talk?  

A corrupt government benefits the corporations.  You know like Lockheed Martin, a Clinton Foundation donor and CGI member who paid Comey $6 million a year and then proceeded to receive several large contracts while Clinton was Secretary of State. Or when Bill Clinton enabled the sale of uranium to billionaire Frank Giustra who then turned around and sold it to the Russians and subsequently made a $31 million donation to the Clinton Founation that was kept secret for 2 years.   

Most people on here are against all corruption except for partisan hypocrites like you who defend criminal behavior because it's "your team."

GoingBig's picture

The fact that you can't see how stupid this article is a testament to something.


The problem in Cal, like many others, is that if you move, you aren't automatically disenorolled to vote. When you die, you also aren't disenrolled unless specific action is taken. 

This is so stupid on so many levels.. This isn't some big conspiracy. 

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

So let's set up a system that solves the problem of inactive and duplicate voter rolls.  Then there is less room to hide the shenanigans.

The statistics are skewed. They are suing based on surveys. More people have registered to vote than the estimates of people 18+! Of course, discrepancies exist. Fucking misinformation. Fuck you Russian Tyler!

"The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it."
I wonder, Simpfrizzy, if you are imitating, or if you are seeking, demanding, imitation?
Those are Adolf's words, btw.   Are you in alignment with Hitler, Mr. Simp?  Are you just irritated that ZH hasn't morphed into full fascist mode, rapidly enough to suit your worldview?

I wish ZH would allow us to downvote a poster, instead of just a post, and at some certain pathetically high number of downvotes, the poster would be put in "time out": no posts or voting, for a certain period of time.  Ah, to dream....  

Forward, Bartender!
