BUSTED! North Carolina Tries to Rig Election, Gets Sued By Government Watchdog
Government watchdog group Judicial Watch is fighting to make sure we have a fair election this time around as much as they’re able to do something about it.
It’s amazing that President Trump won in 2016 in spite of the Democrats’ efforts to fix the election for Hillary Clinton.
On Thursday, Judicial Watch announced that they filed a lawsuit against the state of North Carolina for failing to clean up voter registrations. We’re not talking about small numbers like a few hundred or even a few thousand…we’re talking over 1 million ineligible voters in over 100 counties.
Judicial Watch’s lawsuit 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). The lawsuit also claims that these jurisdictions violated the NVRA by failing to make available to Judicial Watch public records concerning efforts to comply with the law.
In its complaint Judicial Watch also points out that the State’s abnormally high number of inactive registrations shows that it is not removing these registrations after two general federal elections, as the NVRA requires. According to data the State certified to the EAC in 2019:
About 17% of North Carolina’s registrations were inactive, which was the fifth worst (highest) of the 40 states for which data were available
By way of comparison, the median state inactive rate was 9.6%
In 19 North Carolina counties, 20% or more of the registrations were inactive, and in three counties 25% or more were inactive
North Carolina’s inactive registrations remain high to this day. The complaint notes:
As of March 2020, North Carolina’s own data shows it has nearly one million inactive registrations
A large proportion of these registrations have shown no voting activity for more than five years – that is, since prior to November 2014

I hate to say it, but I may not be opposed to a verified system such as the one in that movie “The Circle” which is based on a Facebook-like social network taken to the next level.
