Thousands of Dead People and Ineligible Voters Could Get Mail-In Ballots, Docs Reveal
Court brief shows 1.7k deceased citizens on New Mexico voter rolls, many more ineligible
Thousands of dead people, ineligible voters, and duplicate registrants remain on the voter rolls in New Mexico, new court documents have revealed.
A court brief filed on Wednesday shows a whole host of issues with the state's voters rolls that could open up a mail-in voter system to illegitimate voting.
In an amicus brief, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), detailed various issues with New Mexico’s voter rolls.
The news comes as the state’s Supreme Court debates whether or not to allow mail-in voting only amid the coronavirus crisis.
In its current state, 1,681 dead people on New Mexico’s voter rolls would potentially be sent ballots under the mail-in voting plan.
About 87 percent of these dead voters passed way in 2018 or sometime before, according to PILF researchers.
Some died in the early 1980s and have been on the voter rolls since, according to Breitbart.
Another 1,519 registered voters are listed as being 100-years-old and over.
Specifically, there are 64 registered voters who are listed as 120-years-old.
About 3,168 registered voters have been flagged over duplicate concerns and nearly 200 voter registrations are linked to commercial addresses.
“This is not a theoretical threat: An automatic all-mail election will send thousands of ballots to identified dead, duplicate, outdated, and other problematic addresses,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement.
“We know from our data that New Mexico’s voter roll is not maintained to the standard needed for an automatic, all-mail election,” Adams said.
“There are concrete solutions, but rushing headlong to vote-by-mail is not one of them.”
The court brief comes as left-wing organizations, funded by billionaire George Soros, are spearheading a nationwide effort to hold mail-in state primaries and nationwide mail-in voting for the 2020 presidential election.
Election expert Eric Eggers, research director of the Government Accountability Insititute, has said such a plan would potentially send mail-in ballots to an estimated 24 million ineligible voters.
The staggering figure would include two million dead voters and nearly three million voters who are registered to vote in more than one state.
