11 California Counties Have More Voters Than Citizens

It’s so frustrating when you have to play by the rules. Right, California?

The conservative watchdog, Judicial Watch, recently informed California’s Secretary of state Alex Padilla that California has more voters than citizens…in 11 counties.

According to Breitbart, this information comes from the Election Integrity Project and alleges “the state may be out of compliance with Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA),” which requires states to conduct regular list maintenance.

Judicial Watch lays out the specifics: “[T]here 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%).” The letter notes that the percentage in L.A. Country may be as high as 144%.

The letter contains a threat to sue the Secretary of State if Padilla does not remove from the rolls “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.” It gives Padilla 14 days to respond, and 90 days to correct alleged violations of the law.

Interestingly enough, Padilla “has been one of the main voices in opposition to President Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, refusing to share voter data with it on the argument that doing so would “legitimize false claims of massive election cheating last fall.”

It is shocking that Padilla would be against such measures. But, I guess people rarely offer up evidence which creates their own demise.

President Trump has argued that he would have won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential race had it not been for illegal voting, Breitbart reports.

They’ve targeted California as the potential target and now we have clear proof that California’s list of registered voters needs a gross update.
