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.

It's kinda like Illinios. Outstate is all republican but Cook County has such a large population, it nixes out the rest of the state. Same with Coastal Cali. All the big cities on the coast nix out the more "right" leaning votes in the rest of the state. They should just bust it up and make 2 or 3 more states out of it.

VWAndy's picture

 Bullshit. Thats what is claimed but it cannot be true if they are stuffing the ballot boxes that much. Basic logic says they would not spend that much time and effort unless they needed to.

 Think of cali as a captured state. Corruption is the ruling party.

I feel sorry for my parents, still waving the flag and telling me how great our country is.  I try to gently inform, but it doesn't fly.  Sometimes I wish I was still so naive, this shitshow isn't very fun with no blindfold.

As the Judicial Watch letter which is the subject of this article makes clear, extra registered voters does not imply fraud-- there may be many people who died or moved away who have not been removed from the rolls.  States are required to make 'reasonable efforts' to follow those developments and thereby maintain an accurate voter list.  Here is why those efforts will invariably be less successful in heavily populated areas:

In a densely populated area, the voting districts can be very small in size.  So, those who move homes within a large city are highly likely to change districts, and it can be very difficult for the state to follow.  For example, I live in an apartment in a reasonably large city, and I have at times received mail addressed to three previous occupants, which means that those occupants presumably never filed a change of address form with the local post office.  Note that the same statute cited by Judicial Watch (the NVRA) expressly forbids states from removing names from registration lists without a 'reliable basis' for determining that the voter is ineligible.  Put in plain English, the state has to be fairly certain that someone has moved/died-- removal based on suspicion is prohibited. 

These factors probably explain why Judicial Watch has sent a number of these Section 8 letters but hasn't actually won anything in court.  Common sense tells us that you can't determine whether 'reasonable efforts' were made without looking at the process itself (as opposed to the outcome).  If I made reasonable efforts to run a six-minute mile for the rest of my life, I'd never make it happen.

This is a well thought out comment worthy of consideration; however, the fact California does not want to comply with The Feds request they release their PUBLIC voting records makes these numbers VERY suspect. What you describe is reason enough for there to be a Federal review so processes can be developed for cleaner maintenance of voting records.

This article and other situations in other states all across the country need to comply with the Feds request to hand over their PUBLIC voting records. Otherwise, every single America should be of the opinion they are guilty of voter fraud until they do. At the very least they should be accused of negligent voter accounting and maintenance. It's just OUR opinions after all.

I believe that 45 states have refused to comply with the federal government's request for those records.  Obviously, those states span the entire ideological spectrum, so there's no reason to be suspicious of any particular state based on this refusal.

It is also worth noting that the president is prohibited by the US Constitution (Article I, Section 4) from tinkering with state election policy:

"The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations."

So, individual states have absolute authority over their own election processes except where specifically directed by Congress.  This makes sense, because otherwise the president could hypotheically alter Congress's makeup by setting new rules, disturbing the balance of power.

It's now down to 21 states that have refused to comply.

Most of these are expected to fall in line due to a recent federal court decision.

The deceased Democratic voters bloc risks being fully disenfranchised.

Sucks to be dead and Democratic.

Or to be a voting noncitizen, for that matter.

Nah, man, they're just slack!

Yep, that 'splainz 140% difference.

It explains the Socialist fundraiser pretending to be a Presidential Candidate  who challenged the MI and WI vote counts, only to find out that even in those corrupted situations, when actual votes were actually counted the results actually were worse than had been actually certified in the actual State vote.

This wheel is going to grind slowly and grind very fine.

One thing we can agree on, it sucks getting older and slower.

Large metropolitan cities should require an immediate purge from the polls if a voter fails to vote in their orecinteety 2 years. Put the burden on the biter, not the precinct, county, or state,

Pernicious Gold Phallusy's picture

They did that here 30 years ago. Not now.

That's probably a low ball estimate. Cook County can top it no problem.

A truly useful article would explain how to vote illegally in each state. There is an outside possibility such an article would shame a few states into closing the loopholes.

I'm not sure that the word "shame" can be adequately translated into the native Leftist.

Penalty: California voters should not be allowed to vote in the next four (4) presidential election. Fair is fair.

VWAndy's picture

 Lots of ways you can look at this. Yes corrupted to shit is one way. Another way is to understand that the Ds would not need to stuff ballots this way if things were actually as left leaning as they claim. Its a ruse that all of cali is full of lefties.

God Bless you brother. I'm in Kern County and we are like TEXAS! Oil, Agriculture, Bibles, Mining and Military. We could be our own state. This county is bigger than several states. And don't forget Sheriff Donny Youngblood. He is almost as good as Arpaio.

 Im in LA and know lots of Mexicans that would never vote lefty. Some of them the ones that get what America is actually about are never going to go for this socialist BS. Thats why they came here in the first place. To escape from a planned out servitude to a sick government.

35 percent of Hispanics voted Trump.  I am hopeful with a little finesse that 45 percent of Hispanics will vote right.  Heck 60 to 70 percent think right and act right.  We just have to get that aligned with their votes.

I've said it here often. Despite CAs large population, no way were there 12 mil LEGITIMATE ballots cast in an election with no senator or governor race. This just proves there were 1- 2 million illegal/illigitmate votes cast in CA alone in the 2016 election. Extrapolate that to all the other Dem urban cesspools of voter fraud (remember the Detroit recount where none of the precincts could be recounted due to irregularites?) and Hillary's popular vote victory goes down in flames.

VWAndy's picture

 The numbers have not matched up properly in decades. Spending measures in particular are always way over voted. Thats why state spending is so out of control here.

'Voter fraud' is just another sign-post on the way to the watery abyss.

Tip O'Neill, the former Dem Speaker of the House, was once asked if he went back to his precinct in Cambridge MA to vote. He said he did, but every time he attempted to vote there, he was told he was already recorded as having voted.

Drunken bum didn't realize he did vote.

Only about 30% of eligible voters actually vote. So the ability to rig an election with that many votes at your disposal would be......staggering. Stalin would be proud

truthalwayswinsout's picture

If we ever get a President in the Whilte House with a real set of balls, California would lose 4-5 million voters and 10 million people if illegals were deported.

The State Goverment would start running massive surpluses and housing prices would fall dramatically. And more amazingly, republicans would start to be elected again.

The farce is even worse that implied above.  Far and away the primary reason liberals claim to love illegal aliens is because that is far and away their most reliable source of fraudulent votes.  This is why they totally freak out at the mere mention of requiring proof of eligibility to register or vote.  The entire scam is a huge, intentional predatory criminal action.  The illegals trade votes for handouts, and the politicians trade handouts for power and riches (much greater riches than the crumbs they toss at those who trade votes for handouts).

What I always wonder is... why do republican and conservative predators-DBA-government not aggressively investigate and eliminate this problem.  Seems they have much to gain, so I must be missing some nefarious game they are playing to explain this.

I have no doubt that Trump also won the popular vote when you consider the volume of the leftist voter fraud. Democrats colluded with dead voters and illegal aliens. It's time for a special counsel to prosecute these fuckers.

For all you anti-Trumpers, since this is not the first time this has proved correct from other states. I beleive Trump is proven right on another issue strongly denied by the left. Yawn !

Let's sneak into Mexico and vote Mexico pays for the fucking wall.

Oh wait a minute Mexico doesn't let people sneak in and vote.
