Everyone is aware of the controversial November 3rd, 2020 election, and the claims of voter fraud and voting irregularities, according to The Western Journal.
The states of Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, referred to as important swing states were said to have counts that were just “too close to call” and hung in the balance.
In the early hours of the morning, they weighed in further to the left.
Nearly half a year later controversy still remains regarding last year’s election process.
Arizona has put an audit into play, Georgia just released a new voting integrity bill, and most recently a new lawsuit demands that 21,000 deceased registered voters are to be nixed from Pennsylvania’s voter rolls.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation seems to have come to a compromise with the Pennsylvania Department of State.
PILF’s lawsuit alleges that more than 9,200 registered voters of Pennsylvania had been dead five years prior to the 2020 election.
2,000 voters had been pronounced dead for 10 years.
200 registered voters had been dead for 20 years.
These recent findings coincide with the claims of voter fraud and voting irregularities.
Acting Secretary of the Commonwealth Veronica Degraffenreid came to a compromise with the attorneys that filed the suit.
Both parties agreed to require “state election officials to compare death data sets from the Electronic Registration Information Center to the full voter registration database before the 2021 election.”
“This marks an important victory for the integrity of elections in Pennsylvania,” PILF President J. Christian Adams stated.
‘The Commonwealth’s failure to remove deceased registrants created a vast opportunity for voter fraud and abuse.”
“It is important to not have dead voters active on the rolls for 5, 10, or even 20 years. This settlement fixes that.”
From The Western Journal:
This can make anyone wonder how these residents were still listed as registered voters in the state.
Pennsylvania also agreed to compare its voter database to the Cumulative Social Security Death Index to identify deceased registrants, according to the news release.
So what does the settlement mean for state elections moving forward?
It confirms ongoing concerns conservatives have expressed about deceased registrants, taking a big step toward achieving greater measures of election integrity in Pennsylvania.
Although conservatives were quick to address this issue, the topic of election integrity should be anything but partisan. Fair and honest elections should be the standard for all Americans, regardless of political belief.
Pittsburgh election officials admitted to mailing out duplicate ballots to voters last May, according to The Federalist, and official Dave Voye confirmed that duplicate ballots had been sent to voters due to a miscalculation in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Judicial Watch, a conservative foundation, also sued Pennsylvania for having 800,000 inactive voters still listed on the state’s voter rolls last April, ordering that the state resolve the issue.
It’s obvious the state experienced some difficulties with elections last year. Removing deceased voters from the voter rolls is a necessary step to prevent future instances of fraud or other election-related dilemmas.
