Once again, an elections watchdog group has discovered additional evidence indicating that the November elections are going to be a crap show in which the final results may not be known for weeks, throwing the country into turmoil that could then last months.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an Indiana-based election integrity organization, has discovered 350,000 names of dead people on voter registration rolls in 42 states.
And since there are literally thousands of voter registration across the country, then you can imagine that this is just the tip of a gigantic iceberg.
In addition to the hundreds of thousands of dead voters, the group found almost 40,000 duplicate registrations on the lists examined, and that they “appear to have cast second votes in 2018 from the same address.”
Recall that President Donald Trump won a few of the infamous ‘blue wall’ states in the rust belt and upper Midwest by far fewer votes (11,000 in Michigan, for instance).
Speaking of which, just five states – “New York, Texas, Michigan, Florida, and California—accounted for 51 percent of the total number of deceased individuals on voter rolls, according to the group. PILF further found that nearly 15,000 registrants were credited with voting after death in the 2016 and 2018 elections,” the Free Beacon reported.
“Our voter rolls have not, and will not be ready for a mail-focused election this November,” noted Logan Churchwell, the communications director for PILF. “State court decisions in swing states allowing for relaxed deadlines, signature verification, and harvesting now sit on a foundation of bad voter data.”
“In Pennsylvania, your mis-delivered ballot to the hands of a bad actor will now have extra time to get turned in and not face the traditional standards for signature verification,” Churchwell said. “The only way to absolutely avoid this nightmare is to vote in person.”
The analysis comes as states across the country prepare to handle a surge of mail-in voting for the November elections. Numerous problems plagued mail-in voting during the primary elections this year. Nevada’s largest county sent out more than 200,000 mail-in primary ballots to the wrong addresses, while reports also indicated that 84,000 mail-in presidential primary ballots cast in New York City were disqualified.
The push for mail-in voting has led to a massive influx of cash from wealthy donors. More than $100 million has been poured into efforts both supporting and opposing the practice.
A network of liberal groups, including George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and the Ford Foundation, has donated more than $50 million in support of mail-in voting. These efforts have primarily been geared toward battleground states including Michigan, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, and Arizona, NBC News previously reported.
