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?

So, if the seats in the House are apportioned by the census and there are 4 million illegals, just a guesstimate, located in CA, these 4 million are not due representation in our govt, they are illegal. But CA has 55 electoral votes that I believe is a wrong number and the votes that are cast by CA representatives are also bogus as they reflect more CA Reps than should be present in the House with only the legal population represented.

Please, please please try this!  I'll be there next month. Please try taking our votes away, please try it.

You mis-understand me, I'm being sarcastic. In any event, I doubt that any intruder (illegal or otherwise) would survive the encouter more than a few seconds after the attempt.

No, incorrect, census and congressional apportionment isn't based on citizens but population

See, Hillary won by the popular vote. It just was fraudulent, that's all.

So, the Hillary vote in California is null and void?  Trump by default.  How sweet!

rwe2late's picture

how does this compare to the total number of votes cast?


JD59's picture

It is probably under the number of votes, because Democrats would vote a 1000 times if they know that Democrats are counting and certifying the votes.

As far as California goes, it would not have made much of a difference (8.75 million votes for Clinton and 4.48 million votes for Trump -- or 61.7% vs. 31.6%, respectively).

Ironically, though, if someone were wanting to make a case for popular vote carrying the day as opposed to the Electoral College, that person would have to account for the coincidence of the NATIONWIDE difference in popular votes per the FEC is 2,868,691 votes in favor of Clinton and the number of "surplus" voters in these 11 Cali counties alone tallying up to a roughly equal 2,805,792* -- a difference of only 62,899 !!

* "Surplus" voters calculated by applying the percentage overages reported by the Election Integrity Project of California to the latest Total Population numbers for each county[CA counties page on Wikipedia] -- an admitted over-estimate of only the over 18 registered voters in each county, but it at least gets us in the ballpark.

Additionally, if we were to apply the ZH number (144%) to LA county alone -- the most populous county in the USA at 10,170,292 , then that would account for an "estimate" of 4,474,928 , or approximately enough votes to account for any California Dem vs. Rep state-level difference all by itself !!

tRump is also acceptable.


That marks you as a low info lefty though.   Putin! Something something something.  Pussy grabber! Something something something white nationalism!   Something something something. 

ReturnOfDaMac's picture

I AM a leftie.  Started my life as a gawd loving, Jesus worshipping, ultra conservative, decades ago. My personal life I still am.  Then I realized it was all bullshit, a ploy to get stupid goy to help enrich the elite, mostly at their own expense.  The technique used is so fiendishly brilliant that to this day, I am stilled stunned by its sheer genius.

All you have to do, is use a semi-rational argument to get to the emotional core of the neanderthal brain. You can control that animal on a group level that truly is astonishing!  Simple access methods include using their tribal nature to make them fight amongst themselves (race bating works exceptionally well here).  Most don't know that the overwhelming majority receipents of SNAP and EBT are white females, instead show young brown girls or some "strapping young lads" of the brown persuasion and voila, INSTANT ACCESS.

The largest beneficiary of "affirmative action" is white females.  Instead show ONE nig who managed to get a few extra points after working his ass off against all odds, his family suffering employment discrimination his entire life, living in substandard neighborhoods and schools for GENERATIONS and voila, INSTANT ACCESS.  Control is assured.

Overwhelming number of corporations are controlled by white males, of this can be no doubt.  But show the failures of a white female, like say Carly Fiorina.  Voila, INSTANT ACCESS.  Many more examples. But I hope you can see the design pattern.  As I said, I am in awe at it's effectiveness.

So called conservatives used to stand for balanced budgets.  Easy to get low IQ folks to think an entire nation, that can raise it's own army and print it's own currency, should work it's finances like a simple household. The goy said yeah, yeah, lets do it like that.  Then "conservatives" get control of the checkbook, what do they do? Run up the biggest deficits in history. Starting with a man I voted for, twice. Ronny RayGun, them Busshie1 and then Busshie2.  Only time it ever shrank (even though it was phony, but he was at least able to make it look credible) was Clinton.  Barry blew the lid off, but it was already going exponential by then with a tanking economy.

When Barry came to office, the USSA was losing 900K jobs a month!  A MONTH!!!  Really let that sink in.  'Muricans don't have good memories, forget stuff quick. Reloonicans impeded and sometimes blocked every attempt he made to improve the economy for the working class. It worked. Progress was slow and still slow to this day. They blamed him for the shitty recovery and that damned Obamacare health program.

So called conservatives used to stand for law and order, and justice.  During S&L crisis, criminal banksters went to colon-pounding PRISON!!  Now, they launder money for drug cartels, they stole peoples houses (some even "foreclosed" on paid for houses), created credit card accounts for people without their permission, illegally traded with sanctioned Iran, colluded to rig the gold, silver, and libor markets and many more. What happens? The banksters shareholders, their owners, pay small service fees to the gov't as "fines" and continue to commit crimes with impunity.

So called conservatives used to stand for "family values, christianity and such".  I won't even enumerate all the hypocrisy here, obvious given the wars, murder, divorce, double standards, pitting neighbor against neighbor, ripping society apart, it goes on and on.  Why is it that these so called church's pay no tax?  They even have private jets for the "preachers". Jesus said to his followers: sell all your belongings, give them away, and come follow me.  Todays folks are christians?  Goodness!

Leading up to today, we got the plebs all revv'd up, go ourselves a repub Pres, repub House, and a repub Senate.  Gonna kill that "disatrous" Obamacare and take away your insurance (unless you get it through work).  What happens? Not a damn thing.  Gonna get us out of the disatrous wars!  What happens? Orange bombs a deserted airfield.  Gonna fix that deficit!  What happens? Its up and I'll bet dollars to donuts that the repugs are gonna just gonna up the ceiling in sept.

Conservatives stand for one thing and one thing only: "I just want to be in charge so I can do the bidding of my billionair master".  That is it.

Umm, sorry dickheads, people move in CA. A lot!  I know, I know, some of you folks come from counties in flyover land that only have about 40K people (counting the cows) and this seems strange to you.  And some of you come from so-called "states" that have populations less than San Jose (or their shopping malls). Good thing land doesn't vote.

CA has over 40M people. You see, there are cities in CA that have over 1M people. So county lines cross folks who move from one city to the next. Moving closer to jobs and such. I know, jobs, it's strange thing in methland flyover country.  This article is bullshit.  Stirs up the jungle bunnies in fly-over-murica who can't understand big numbers and what that does to city planners.  There is no voter fraud. It's a ruse. Used to employ interstate cross check in YOUR counties, so we don't count your vote if you have a name like Jose Guerra, Juan Garcia, or James Black.  William Clifford or Charlie Smith is ok even if it does show up several times.  Chen Nguyen? Definately a two county voter! Capiche?

We are on to your stupid asses, shit is very real.  Can't pull the dumb shit on the coasts. But if the ignorami in flyover counties don't stand up for their own righ to vote, after the niggers and bichez fought for that right for the last 50 years, the rest of us will say fuck 'em. Get what the hell they deserve.  Serve jeebuz, be your husbands property, minority's get shot if they talk back when driving while minority, and be grateful you still live.

And yet you have the most welfare recipients, per capita, and you have had the most cities go bankrupt.  You are also seriously in debt as a state, and officials intrude upon the lives of your subjects more than even New Jersey or New York.

1. I always respond kindly to people who call me a dickhead in the first sentence.

2. Yes, land does vote.  It's called the US Senate.  Perhaps you've heard of it?

3. Yes, illegal aliens are registering to vote in droves in California.  If you are illegal and at the DMV and the clerk hands you a voter registration form, are you going to say "I'm an illegal alien and can't fill that out"?  No, you keep your mouth shut, fill out the form and hope for the best.

4. No, illegal aliens are not voting in droves in California.  Their absentee ballots are being prepared and submitted by Social Justice Warriors for whom the end justifies the means.  

5. If you are against reasonable measures to ensure the integrity of our election process you are part of the problem.  We don't jump to your "That's racist!" dog whistle any more.

ReturnOfDaMac's picture

You Sir have never seen me post "Thats racist" on ZH, ever.  Not once.  But, yes I am part of the problem.  I like to encourage voting and I like to keep secure borders too.  But I would NEVER want your flawed, phony, obviously intended to stop certain folks from voting program called interstate cross check.

Blankenstein's picture

No you just painted with a broad brush and said stormfront invaded


" At ZH, we've been invaded.  The "white male persecution" farce is strong with this place.  Used to have a lot of intelligent discussion here, seriously detailed, factual, and interesting debate.  But somewhere somehow the crowd from stormfront invaded."

So what harm can there be with a voting system that simultaneously De registers you in one place if you register in another?

ReturnOfDaMac's picture

None if you de-register the right person.  Maybe kind of hard to de-register John Smith.  I like the idea of having birthdates too not just names.  I also LOVE paper ballots, a little harder to continue the jackassery when there is a paper trail.  Would be over the top GREAT if they actually counted the votes.  You know those "provisional" ballots are not usually counted...

A lot of uncounted Hillary supporters are in California cemeteries. Also undocumented Hispanic workers are by definition off official records.
