DuPage voter registrations don't add up, group alleges
DuPage County's voter registration logs are incorrect and possibly illegal, a transparency organization alleged in a letter it sent to the state recently.
The county is one of 24 in Illinois that has more registered voters than voting-age residents, Judicial Watch said, and if the problem isn't fixed within 90 days, a lawsuit could follow.
“Dirty election rolls can mean dirty elections,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. “These 11 states face possible Judicial Watch lawsuits unless they follow the law and take reasonable steps to clean up their voting rolls of dead, moved, and non-citizen voters.”
Judicial Watch compared data from the Election Assistance Commission and the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey. It accused Illinois with not fulfilling requirements under the National Voter Registration and Help America Vote acts that charge states with ensuring voter rolls are up to date.
States must have a program in place to remove registered voters who have died, moved or been convicted of a crime that removes their right to vote. Further, they must ensure that no non-citizens are registered to vote.
