The Judicial Watch group warns of “dirty elections”. It found 1.8 million “ghost voters” in 29 states.
Judicial Watch published a comparative study of the Census Bureau’s population statistics and state voter registration data, which reveals a notable discrepancy. The watchdog group is now warning of potential voter fraud and “dirty” voter lists, as the Washington Times reports.
The study found that 352 US counties in 29 states have 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible citizens of voting age.
“In other words, enrollment rates in these counties exceeded 100 percent of eligible voters. The study found that eight states had a statewide enrollment rate of over 100%: Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont,” reported Tom Fitton, president of the monitoring group.
Some of these surpluses were 187% in Texas, 177% in New Mexico, and 171% in South Dakota.
“The new study on excesses – or ghost voters – shows the carelessness with which blind ballots and ballot papers are sent to electoral rolls. Dirty ballots can mean dirty elections,” Fitton noted.
