BEWARE THE ’GHOST VOTERS’
“Some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud,” writes National Review contributing editor Deroy Murdock, who pored over damning U.S. Census Bureau data compiled by Judicial Watch.
The nation has a big population of “ghost voters,” he says.
“My tabulation of Judicial Watch’s state-by-state results yielded 462 counties where the registration rate exceeded 100 percent. There were 3,551,760 more people registered to vote than adult U.S. citizens who inhabit these counties,” says Mr. Murdock.
Some counties had quite a few phantom voters. Washington’s Clark County, for instance, has 166,811. California’s Sand Diego County. however, has 810,966 overregistrations, while Los Angeles County has 707,4750 Mr. Murdock said, referring to California itself as a “haunted house teeming with 1,736,556 ghost voters.” Such numbers could certainly sway any election. “Whether Americans consider voter fraud a Republican hoax, a Democratic tactic, or something in between, everyone should agree that it’s past time to exorcise ghost voters from the polls,” advises Mr. Murdock.
