Get Ready: California-Style Elections Are Coming to Your State

BY ELLEN SWENSEN JANUARY 25, 2019

If you thought the 2018 elections in California were a mess, you were right. Dangerous new election laws and lax practices contributed to that mess, and now they want the rest of the nation to suffer the way Californians do.

First, the mess. Election Integrity Project, California (EIPCa), a group of concerned citizens in California, has been documenting problems in the state's election system for years. We have done the hard, messy work on the ground to catalog the problems....read more of article published in PJ Media

Finally!! California Agrees to Begin Cleanup of its Voter List!
LA County to Remove 1.5 Million Inactive Registrants!
 
 
SANTA CLARITA, CA. January 4, 2019 - Election Integrity Project California, Inc. (EIPCa) today announced the settlement of its lawsuit that requires Dean Logan, Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk, to immediately begin to follow federal mandates for identifying and removing deceased, moved and other ineligible registrants (as many as 1.5 million inactive registrants) from the LA County voter rolls. The settlement also requires Alex Padilla, California Secretary of State, to see that similar actions are taken by each County Registrar throughout California.
 
The lawsuit, filed in August of 2017 with EIPCa as a primary plaintiff, alleged that the defendants were not following the requirements of Section 8 of the 1993 National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). The NVRA requires states to reasonably maintain state and county voter registration rolls. The mandates of this settlement, when performed, will bring California into federal compliance as is required of every other state.
 
"Because of the powerful and overwhelming evidence provided by EIPCa, this was an exceptionally strong case," said Linda Paine, president of EIPCa. "California's voter rolls are unforgivably bloated, a situation that invites voter impersonation and fraud."
 
EIPCa retained Judicial Watch as its lawyer and pursued this suit as EIPCa's first step to restoring to the citizens faith in their election system and confidence in the outcome of California's election results.
 
Under the Clinton administration, the U.S. Department of Justice gave California a pass on following the NVRA voter roll maintenance mandate. The result was that California was not held accountable for failure to maintain its voter lists for over twenty years. It is no wonder that California's voter rolls are in the deplorable condition they have been shown to be by EIPCa.
 
EIPCa considers this a colossal win. By bringing California, the most populous state in the union, into legal compliance with respect to its unmaintained voter rolls, the settlement, when performed, will have a major impact across the nation. Los Angeles County has over 10 million residents, more than the population of 41 of the 50 United States. California is America's largest state with over 38 million residents.
 
The lawsuit was prompted when EIPCa's data analyst team found and reported that the number of registered voters in at least eight California counties exceeded 100% of the eligible population. Los Angeles County had by far the largest number of registrants over 100% with approximately 482,000 people more than those eligible to vote.
 
This outrageously high figure is exacerbated by the fact that Los Angeles County alone has over 1.5 million inactive registrants on its rolls. Inactives are persons who may not be legitimate registrants but are still eligible to vote by virtue of not being removed from the eligible voter roll database as is required by the NVRA. The settlement requires LA County to contact each of these inactive registrants by March 19, 2019 and timely remove from the voter rolls those who are ineligible to vote.
 
Under the terms of the settlement, Mr. Padilla and Mr. Logan are required to make regular reports of their corrective actions and results. Progress and compliance will be subject to enforcement by a federal judge and validated by EIPCa researchers.
 
 "This mandate to follow federal law and properly maintain the voter rolls is a critically important win for the citizens of California and the country," said Linda Paine, "because it will make vote fraud more difficult to commit."
 
There is much more to be done to assure eligible Californians that their votes count, undiluted by the casting of illegitimate votes. EIPCa will continue to leverage the massive amount of evidence and documentation provided by its data team and election observer volunteers to effect further substantive corrections for the protection of each eligible California voter.
 
EIPCa, a tax exempt, public benefit, non-profit 501(c)(3), non-partisan corporation dedicated to assuring that every lawfully cast vote is accurately counted and reported will continue to add to its 8 years of research and documentation to determine whether the state and counties are complying with state and federal laws that protect the integrity of the electoral process.
 
 Simply stated, EIPCa will relentlessly pursue the fulfillment of its motto:
Every Lawfully Cast Vote Accurately Counted.

CALIFORNIA'S "SHAPE-SHIFTING" VOTING RESULTS
Why did ballot counts shift dramatically after the June election was certified?
 
SANTA CLARITA, CA. November 26, 2018 - Election Integrity Project California, Inc.(EIPCa), a citizen-funded nonpartisan election oversight group, today reported that it has found troubling inconsistencies between the posted election results and the state's official voting records for the June 5, 2018 Primary election in the four counties it has studied. EIPCa analysts compared the official, final June 5 election results posted on the websites of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and Ventura counties to the state's official "VoteCal" voting records for each registered voter. The numbers show (i) dramatic decreases in the number of poll ballots and (ii) dramatic increases in the number of mail ballots reported in VoteCal just three and one half months after the Primary election was certified. Los Angeles County results are shown below. Orange, Riverside and Ventura counties showed similar patterns*.

VoteCal is California's official database for federal elections. After an election's ballots are counted and reported, each ballot is attributed to a voter in his or her official voting history. It is to be expected that the numbers of ballots in the voting histories will change after an election due to cancellation of registrations for those who have died or relocated and the addition of voters entering the county over time. However, the dramatic shifts between poll ballots and mail ballots is illogically inexplicable and troubling.
 
EIPCa analysts dug deeper and found that almost 100,000 June primary voters in Los Angeles County were listed as casting poll ballots in the county data but were listed as casting mail ballots in the state's VoteCal data. This would help explain the shifts between the two data sources, but leaves unexplained why the change occurred, since the county and state data sources should contain identical information.
 
"In today's heated political environment, voters' confidence in elections is being shaken across the country and especially in California," stated Linda Paine, EIPCa's President. "Inconsistencies in the reporting of votes makes it impossible for citizen groups like EIPCa to independently validate the results of elections. California voters deserve to know that their votes are accurately counted and accounted for. EIPCa will continue to seek answers from election officials."

COMPLAINT:
CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES, FAILURE TO MAINTAIN ACCURATE VOTER ROLLS

Dear Attorney General Sessions, Secretary Nielsen, and Mr. Gore:

I am writing to you to inform you of a major error in California' s new automatic voter registration process recently discovered, affecting tens of thousands of registrants. This error further discredits a voter registration system that is inherently prone to ineligible voter registration and requires your offices to take corrective action.

On April 1,2018, California implemented automatic voter registration for individual s who renew or apply for driver's licenses . Individuals who register to vote at California Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) offices began to have their registrations electronically transmitted to the Californi a Secretary of State.

California's People's House has become a den of thieves
California's 'Grand Theft Election'
By Katy Grimes -- December 8, 2018

On election night, California Republicans were heading for victories. Less than one month later, while ballots are still being counted, half of California's Republican Congressional races were flipped by Democrat challengers, none of whom have ever held an elected public office.

Republicans lost election night leads for five members of Congress, three state Assembly races, two state Senate seats and a Board of Equalization candidate, Shawn Steel wrote in a column this week. .... Click here to read article.

Questions and Concerns about Counting the Ballots
Was my vote received? Did my vote count? Was the election "rigged"? What can I do?

These and other questions are coming in to EIPCa hard and fast. We have been programmed to expect results in an instant, and for websites to give us immediate answers to everything we want to know.

BUT...If we want ACCURATE vote counts while greater and greater numbers of us vote by mail or provisionally, there is no choice but to wait. Let's consider these questions:

The Perfect Storm: Legislation that weakens the Integrity of CA Elections
"It is enough that the people know there was an election." J. Stalin
- Updated May 22, 2018

The Constitutions of all 50 states clearly mandate that voting is not a universal right, but a privilege given ONLY to legal citizens. California's election code guarantees every registered citizen ONE, privately cast, uninfluenced vote.

The Problem of Securing Our Elections Has Been Solved.
Now Will the Politicians Do It?
- Updated on March 31, 2018

EIPCa agrees that the only way to ensure the integrity of the vote is to ensure that voters can ensure that their intentions are in fact what is recorded. We also believe that the only way to ensure integrity in the electoral process to have citizen watchdog groups like the Election Integrity Project California have the right to observe every aspect of the electoral process, to ask questions and to receive answers like we do in the deep blue state of California. What is appalling is that most states actually prevent citizens from doing this by requiring permission from the political parties to observe their own electoral process.

Governor of sanctuary state signs major voter registration law - March 20, 2018

As goes CA, so goes the rest of the nation!! It isn't taking long!!!! This "forced" registration is SO wrong. Citizens in every state must take action and force their legislators to end this assault on America's sovereignty. If non-citizens, who have NO allegiance to America can vote, the dissolution of the American citizens' vote becomes embedded in the electoral process!
