LA County Admits Number Of Registered Voters At 144% Of Resident Citizens Of Voting Age

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?

A thought just occurred to me.... since Trump is obviously never going to have a Congress that'll pass anything he wants maybe he should go in a different direction.  Namely, stamping out fraud and corruption like this shit with an iron fist.  Full bore, fuck reelection chances, just tear it down.  Prosecutions, perp walks, funding cut-offs, etc.  Ah, alcohol, it's a wonderful thing.  Makes you think happy thoughts that will never happen.

Been saying this shit for as long asI can remember: There are a lot more conservatives in Cali than we're all led to believe. If every polling station was tightly monitored during any given election, we'd be very surprised.

Democrats have been rigging elections here for a loooooooong fucking time!

Well, Yolo county (110%) is easy to account for: they had eleven voting-age residents, all registered to vote, and one moved away without re-registering elsewhere.  s/I used to chuckle when I got petition signers from Yolo.  Like, people really live there?Come to think of it, I might still be on the 'inactive' registered voter list in Santa Cruz--as well as Alameda... and Sonoma...  And Maricopa, AZ, Pennington, SD, Spokane, WA, Denver, CO.  Haven't ever voted in any of those places, don't plan to ever do so.  Every election I've ever voted in (albeit only two) has been rigged, but that's a different story.

It's actually a very good sign that democracy in America doesn't exist and it's a clear tell sign that America is living under a dictatorship. America needs outside help to instore democracy in the country.Maybe Russia would want to do the good thing and bomb the shit out of America.Then their soldiers could kill and rape the woman and children and destroy the country. you know... like America did with every other country in the world that wasn't "democratic"

Several years ago someone told me that a lot of the SC college/university students actually come from blue states, but as soon as they can they register as residents and vote in the Dems.They figure they'll be there for their time in school and a few years afterwards, so they call themselves residents and get away with it.Then they leave and other subsequent blue travellers continue the same.So it is difficult to analyze the voting patterns in SC and other college states because the real residents and the vagabond snowflakes both vote.It would be interesting to know the actual state vote without the snowflake vote.

The problem is much larger than vote fraud, it is election fraud that is occurring. Wait, you're saying it's election fraud if illegal alien Mexican nationals vote in US elections?  WAAAAYYCIST. But if Don Trump Jr. (stupidly) gets trapped into taking a meeting with a Russian lawyer, that is worthy of a fucking federal grand jury and hiring a bunch of Hillary supporters to "investigate". Don't look here, look over there! Red Herring!/s

"¡ así que no hay manera de que Hillary pueda perder!"I'm sure she won LA Jose, and the state of CA. But she didn't win POTUS. I appreciate your enthusiasm.So just think if there are 10% of eligible voters that are not registered, just 10%, 54% are fraudulent registrations.Was anyone questioning why CA is ass hammered for all time? Anybody? Anyone? Bueller?

The improper voter registration is only 25% of the problem.25% of the problem is no voter ID required to get a ballot.25% is ballot chain of custody - this above problem = 100% of registered votong. Statistical improbability.25% is below.Look up what is Edison Research and who owns it. Margin of error for Edison Research is considered the 5.7 mmSCYTL - Spanish company, Soros owned - count our data on elections… votes as fractions - fraction magic - on the fly - capture 96% for one candidate and 4% given to another candidate. Audit shows a vote and result, But does not show the fraction.930pm Nov 8th - election called for Hillary. 7 swing states started showing up for Trump. Overlay is a quantum process in the electron spin  of data flow. AI system was detecting the flow of data and interpulating the data of true vote. AI system was brought in and fix the fraud so that those states the margin of error for those states. The discovery process will discover the fraud.AI - Overlay - group of patriots - made this software come together to make a change a significant fraud from occuring. 3 men responsible for Trump getting in. Working for the military.And unfortunately I lost the sourcs for all this info.

I think the real problem it's our political system.One party masquerading as two parties.You get two "choices" from which to "elect",then after 4 or 8 years you start to realize that nothing has changed.That your "election" was basically a "selection" and your"elected" do not represent you. Some do not even realize this in your face fact.Then,you have again the biggest reality show which is Presidential elections and you have "hope" for "change" again. Or was is MAGA this time ?The biggest problem is that corporations are considered people and allowed to "donate" a uuuge amount of money to bribe and buy our "representatives"The biggest problem is their corporate propaganda media  that we call MSM/entertainment industryAnd,by far,the biggest problem is the zionist banking cartel,with the real leader of the country,the Federal Reserve,which can print money out of its ass to buy and finance all this farce that we call political system

There are a lot more conservatives in Cali than we're all led to believe...

Been here for nearly 60 years and have to agree. There certainly are a number of other we do battle with but what I find is they come from other states thinking they'll find "brothers in arms" so to speak.

Orange County is much more reflective of the multi-generational homeowner here in my opinion, which is why the gerrymandering by the representatives sent to Sacramento by densely populated and highly government funded recipients are kept so busy in their work to isolate and thereby dilute these massive voting blocks.

Individually, we're not that different from others in this country. Wisconsin anyone? Austin?

..without electricity the big cities starve...

Who around here remembers President Reagan's head of the Department of Interior reminding San Francisco where their water came /comes from when the local bureaucrats started getting uppity with their fellow Californian's conservative leanings?

It always brings a smile to my face when I remember what a farce the cartoonish "man behind the curtain" reality is based on.

[To this day the California Department of Water Resources does not include complete Hetch Hetchy reservoir's water information on the public accessible website as it does for the rest of the state's water storage facilities.]

Agreed.  It's blatantly obvious here in Ventura County, CA and we didn't make the list that includes 11 other counties.Gov Moonbeam Brown is a pathalogical liar along with Feinstein, Pelosi, Boxer, Waters, etc.......and the list goes on.  They reward others to fabricate lies and commit unlawful acts.  The end justifies the means donchaknow?

Exactly. CA kicked the FEDS (re: immigration, et al) out of their state long ago, and Obama did nothing about it. He just stood by and watched it happen with a wink and a smile.

Trump can order the FEDS back in there today and start arresting these malcontents. Will it get ugly? Will it be a tough job? Will CA state authorities resist giving up power? Yes. But it has to be done now or it will never be done. Now is the perfect opportunity for Trump to do this. And he definitely has the support.

Recall this, CA voted AGAINST gay marriage in 2000 in the Knight Initiative (Prop 22) by a huge majority: 61-39. Then the state Supreme Court ruled it "unconstitutional" to the state. Then, AGAIN, in 2008, CA voters invalidated case law In re Marriage Cases that supposedly supported gay marriage, in Prop 8. That was struck down again by the state Supreme Court.

That tells you all you need to know about the wishes and beliefs of the average CA citizen.
