I know there aren't any (or many problems with voting records, I just found this to be somewhat interesting. Remember, this is the "agreement" (read plea bargin) between plaintiff and defendant.

(Washington, DC) – 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.

Los Angeles County has over 10 million residents, more than the populations of 41 of the 50 United States. California is America’s largest state, with almost 40 million residents.

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.

  • •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 [19%] counties have registration rates exceeding 100 percent of the age-eligible citizenry.

      Sorry. I didn't cite.

      Secondly, There are two different numbers. Half say 1.2, half say 1.5. The stories were put out about the same time. At this point, 300,000 voters are a pretty moot point.

      "The entire State of California has a registration rate of about 101 percent of its age-eligible citizenry." --OD quoting Judicial Watch

      At first blush, having more registered voters than eligible citizens sounds scandalous and worthy of federal investigation. It's not.

      According to the U.S. Census Bureau, "at age 18, a person can expect to move another 9.1 times in their remaining lifetime". The average US lifespan is 77 years. The average voting age person will move an average of every 6.5 years. That means the average voter will be living in a different place within three federal elections than they are now.

      When voters move they register to vote in their new location. Nobody unregisters to vote from their old location. When people die or move out of the state, they are not unregistering to vote. All that moving and dying accounts for the inflated voter rolls. You can imagine how it's not so easy for county clerks to maintain a clean voter list.

      It isn't a nefarious conspiracy to steal elections. About half of registered voters in California voted in 2022. For the miniscule impact an individual might have by voting twice in two different location, it's not worth the risk of being convicted of a federal crime. Not to mention there is a good chance your vote cheating will be discovered. Whether you voted or not (or voted twice) is publicly available information on sites and apps like VoteWithMe and OutVote.

      The normal amount of registered voters generally runs between 40-60%. Many districts are lower than that. In LA County, there's a voting difference of 50-70% in the average and how many were registered. You don't think that's odd?

      Nobody unregisters to vote from their old location.

      I have every time I've moved. And everyone I know has. They keep their voting up just like they do their driver's license, insurance, and credit cards. But I guess it's the difference between law abiding and not.

      You have always made every reason, excuse, and justification for this to bend it to your thoughts.

      And remember, these weren't the REAL numbers, which are higher. This was the plea deal the county and courts found "agreeable" to admit to.

      You may be right about updating your voters registration. I am not so sure it's a law or if it's the law in every state. I have lived in the same house since 1980. Before that, I lived in a couple places here in Ashland Oregon. I don't really remember how or what I did to unregister from my old place and then re-register for my current location. Before that I lived in Wisconsin. I know I didn't announce my departure to the county clerk when I left the state. Maybe some people do.

      I am not sure what you mean by "The normal amount of registered voters generally runs between 40-60%...In LA County, there's a voting difference of 50-70%..."

      Maybe you mean this, but it doesn't agree with your numbers: The number of registered voters as a share of the US voter population is 72.7%. California is 69.4% See link.

      Curt, I think each state (or maybe county) has its own method of keeping voter registration updated. When we lived in NC, before moving to FL full time we had a small place there that we would go to for the three winter months and we had our mail forwarded to the FL address.

      When we came back to NC got a notice that our voter registration was canceled. We had to re-register in order to vote. When we asked why it was canceled the clerk said that our address had changed to a Florida address.

      I moved to CA, in '84 and lived there thru 2021. In that time I had 8 residences - 6 in L.A. County and 2 in Orange County. In Dec 2021 Sheri and I moved to AZ. I never unregistered to vote, so I'm probably still on voter files there, as is Sheri. There have to be tens nayne hundreds of thousands of others like us.

      Probably a good idea to check the voter registration requirements if you are moving to another state. The links show Maine’s and North Carolina’s registration forms.

      I suppose od expects this story to scare us libs. Massive fail there, od.

      I think he expected us to go all "Oh my goodness! How will we ever elect any Democrats in California again if all those dead people and illegal aliens we bus over the border to vote illegally for us???".

      This will in no way affect the number of eligible voters who will vote in elections in California in any way whatsoever.

      Republicans refuse to accept that their party is dying a slow death. This trend is best exemplified by the fact that Republican presidential candidates have lost the popular vote in every election this century except in 2004 when Kerry lost by 3.5 million votes. Biden beat Trump last election by almost 8 million votes despite Republican efforts to make it harder for people to vote.

      This is happening because Americans have awaken to the realization that for the average working class family, Republican policies suck. Add to this the fact that an overwhelming majority of Gen X and Y Americans have completely rejected Republican politicians.

      It'll be interesting to see how a minority of Americans continue to impose their will on the rest of Americans.

      "I suppose od expects this story to scare us libs. Massive fail there, od."

      Actually, it was just to point out sheeple are the parties of corruption and greed.


    12. by Ponderer on February 28, 2023 10:43 am

      Well, again, massive fail there, od.

      I wouldn't expect anything less from you. Just complete hatred and disdain.
