Election Watchdog Says '131% Of Eligible DC Voters Registered'

 December 9, 2023

A watchdog group called Judicial Watch recently investigated voter registration numbers in the District of Columbia, California, and Illinois.

All three areas were sent letters warning them that they are violating the National Voter Registration Act by not cleaning up their voter rolls.

With regard to Washington, D.C. Judicial Watch said that the voting rolls showed a much higher number of voters than should have been eligible.

"D.C.’s total registration rate -- its total number of registrations divided by the most recent census estimates of its citizen voting-age population -- is greater than 131%," the review revealed.

That's not just a tiny little margin of error; that seems serious.

Judicial Watch revealed its next steps:

If Judicial Watch is not satisfied with the jurisdictions’ responses to its notice letters, Judicial Watch plans to sue under the National Voter Registration Act to ensure the jurisdictions take certain reasonable steps to clean up their voter rolls as the law requires.

Hopefully the group means business.
