Judicial Watch wins Federal lawsuit against the State of California and Los Angeles County

The State and County must remove 1.5 million illegal voters from voter rolls

 Los Angeles, Dec. 4 (– Judicial Watch announced yesterday that it had reached a settlement with the State of California and Los Angeles County that requires them to remove 1.5 million inactive voters from their voter registration rolls, as required under the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

Judicial Watch filed its voter-rolls lawsuit in December 2017. They argued successfully that 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% of its adult citizen population. The entire State of California has a registration rate of about 101% of its age-eligible citizenry. Eleven of California’s 58 counties have registration rates exceeding 100% of the age-eligible citizenry.

Democrats won big in LA County and in the whole State of California in 2016 and 2018 elections.

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.
