Judicial Watch Sues North Carolina for 1M Inactive Voters on Voting Rolls

According to Breitbart, “Judicial Watch, a watchdog organization, has filed a lawsuit against North Carolina and two of its counties for having nearly one million inactive voters on their voting rolls.”

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday argues that North Carolina, Mecklenburg County, and Guilford County failed to make reasonable efforts to remove ineligible voters from their registration rolls as required by the federal National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).

Judicial Watch alleges that the States’ own data shows that North Carolina has nearly one million inactive voters on its rolls, and Mecklenburg County and Guilford County each have more registered voters on their rolls than the total number of eligible voters in the regions.

Brietbart writes:

Judicial Watch analysis finds that Mecklenburg County has a voter registration rate of 107 percent, while Guilford County has a voter registration rate of 102 percent. In Mecklenburg County, Judicial Watch alleges there are about 115,000 inactive voters on the voter rolls, and in Guilford County there are about 72,000 inactive voters.

Judicial Watch points out about 17% of North Carolina’s registrations were inactive as of 2019, which was the fifth worst (highest) of the 40 states for which data were available. The average state has an inactive registered voter rate of about 9.6 percent.

Judicial Watch alleges, in 19 North Carolina counties, 20% or more of the registrations were inactive that remain on the voter rolls, and in three counties 25% or more were inactive.  Specifically, about 15.5% of Mecklenburg County’s voter registrations are inactive, while 18 percent of Guilford County’s voter registrations are inactive.

The court brief comes as left-wing organizations, funded by billionaire George Soros, are organizing an effort to hold mail-in state primaries and nationwide mail-in voting for the 2020 presidential election.
