A conservative activist says there's a serious need to clean up the voter rolls in at least three Pennsylvania jurisdictions.
Recently volunteers working for the American Civil Rights Union examined voter registration data from two eastern Pennsylvania counties and the city of Philadelphia. Their efforts revealed that hundreds of voters in those jurisdictions were more than 100 years of age.
Robert Knight, a senior fellow at the ACRU, shared with OneNewsNow a glaring issue found within in the registration data.
"The most shocking finding was something like more than 170 super-centenarians – those are people 110 and older – voting in Pennsylvania in 2012," he describes.
So why is that a problem? "There are only about 300 super-centenarians all across the United States in a country of 330 million – so this doesn't make sense," he says. "This shows the voter rolls really need to be cleaned up in Pennsylvania."
Knight adds that the ACRU has been pushing for election officials to clean up their voter rolls. "We've sued counties in Mississippi and Texas and Florida – and we're going to sue more because this is a long-term problem," he says.
There's also an indication of problems with voter rolls on the West Coast. FOX News reported Thursday that a California man discovered two stacks of ballots on his mailbox – 83 ballots in all – that were addressed to different people supposedly living in the same two-bedroom apartment.
Knight says it's obvious some election officials haven't been doing their job.
