160 Counties Have More Registered To Vote Than Eligible Voters

Yet another reason as to the need for voters to present ID at the poll

(The Blaze[1]) A nonpartisan election integrity group has sent legal notices to 160 counties across the U.S. that it says have more voters on its registration rolls than actual live, eligible voters – and thus represent potential hotbeds for election fraud, the organization told TheBlaze exclusively.

The Houston-based True the Vote said the counties may be in violation of Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, which mandates that election officials maintain clean voter rolls by removing people who have died, moved away or are no longer eligible to vote. True the Vote is demanding each of the counties show proof of compliance or they’ll bring civil suit.

The counties in question are spread across 19 states that together account for 203 electoral college votes, including six current battleground states. Among the counties are LaSalle, Ill., which True the Vote identified as having 520 percent voter registration; Jefferson, Miss. with more than 230 percent; and Hanson, S.D. with 165 percent.

Surely, some of this can be explained away as simple errors, but the main question is “how much is intentional?” How many are dead, pets, felons, illegals, and others not eligible to vote? How many are duplicate registrations? True The Vote is demanding that these counties take proper actions to clean their voter rolls, as this rolls currently violate Section 8 of the NVRA.
