Judicial Watch Score Huge Win! 1.5 Million Ineligible Register Voters To Be Removed

Los Angeles County has more voter registrations on its voter rolls than it has citizens who are old enough to register.

This is a huge victory for Judicial Watch and justice.

Judicial Watch (JW), a watchdog group, claims it reached a settlement agreement with California and Los Angeles County to begin removing 1.5 million inactive registered names from voter rolls.

JW filed a lawsuit that claimed Los Angeles County had 1.5 million-plus ineligible registered voters. This would make the county the largest collection of inactive registrations in the entire country. Most of these inactive names could be due to relocation or death.

Either way, this is huge news.
Judicial Watch announced today that it signed a settlement agreement with the State of California and County of Los Angeles under which they will begin the process of removing from their voter registration rolls as many as 1.5 million inactive registered names that may be invalid. These removals are required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
The NVRA is a federal law requiring the removal of inactive registrations from the voter rolls after two general federal elections (encompassing from 2 to 4 years). Inactive voter registrations belong, for the most part, to voters who have moved to another county or state or have passed away.

Judicial Watch filed a 2017 federal lawsuit to force the cleanup of voter rolls (Judicial Watch, Inc., et al. v. Dean C. Logan, et al. (No. 2:17-cv-08948)). Judicial Watch sued on its own behalf and on behalf of Wolfgang Kupka, Rhue Guyant, Jerry Griffin, and Delores M. Mars, who are lawfully registered voters in Los Angeles County. Judicial Watch was also joined by Election Integrity Project California, Inc., a public interest group that has long been involved in monitoring California’s voter rolls.

In its lawsuit, Judicial Watch alleged:

Los Angeles County has more voter registrations on its voter rolls than it has citizens who are old enough to register. Specifically, according to data provided to and published by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, Los Angeles County has a registration rate of 112 percent of its adult citizen population.

The entire State of California has a registration rate of about 101 percent of its age-eligible citizenry.

Eleven of California’s 58 counties have registration rates exceeding 100 percent of the age-eligible citizenry.
