A new report from Judicial Watch is raising new questions over voter identification and security just hours before the Iowa Caucus; revealing at least eight counties in the state have more registered voters than eligible voters.
“Judicial Watch announced that at least eight Iowa counties have voter registration rolls larger than their voting age population. According to Judicial Watch’s analysis of data released by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) this year, these eight counties are on the list of 378 counties nationwide that have more voter registrations than citizens living there who are old enough to vote, i.e., counties where registration rates exceed 100%. These 378 counties combined had about 2.5 million registrations over the 100%-registered mark. In Iowa, there are least 18,658 ‘extra names’ on the voting rolls in the eight counties at issue,” writes Judicial Watch.
“Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections and Iowa need to undertake a serious effort to address its voting rolls,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
