Judicial Watch Leads The Fight in Cleaning Up Voter Rolls
From The Epoch Times:
Millions of young and minority voters are at risk of their votes not being counted in November due to mail-in voting problems and too few polling places, according to Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.).
“Democrats want to stick their heads in the sand and not address this issue,” Davis told The Epoch Times on Sept. 8. “This issue more disproportionately affects younger voters and voters who are persons of color than anyone else.”
Davis pointed to hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots that were disqualified during primary elections earlier this year in California, New York, and Wisconsin.
“These voters are the ones that were most likely to be disenfranchised in these areas where the mail-in ballots were disqualified because they didn’t meet a plethora of election laws that exist in those states,” Davis said.
Davis’s comments echoed concerns he expressed during an Aug. 29 hearing of the Committee on House Administration, of which he is the ranking minority member. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) is chairwoman of the committee, which is responsible for overseeing federal election laws.
California officials in 2018 settled a lawsuit filed by the nonprofit government watchdog Judicial Watch by agreeing to clean up the voter rolls to ensure dead voters are removed, duplicate names are eliminated, and accurate addresses are available.
But Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told The Epoch Times that California could still have up to 1.6 million inactive voter names just in Los Angeles County.
“California, up until our settlement, had not cleaned up its voter rolls in 20 years,” Fitton said, “so there is this inordinate number of inactive voters on the rolls.”
