The State of California and Los Angeles County agreed to remove up to 1.5 million inactive voters from voter rolls Dec. 3 in order to settle a federal lawsuit brought by a watchdog group.

The settlement agreement (pdf), filed Dec. 3 with U.S. District Court Judge Manuel Real, requires the state and the county to notify all of the 1.5 million potentially ineligible voters and remove them from voter rolls if there is no response.

The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) requires states to remove inactive registrations from voter rolls after two general federal elections. Most inactive registrations belong to voters who have moved to another county or state or have passed away, according to Judicial Watch.

As part of the settlement, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla agreed to update the state’s NVRA manuals and to notify election officials in each county that they are obligated to regularly clean up voter rolls.

The lawsuit revealed that Los Angeles has the highest number of inactive registrations of any county in the nation, with one in every five registrations being inactive.

“This settlement vindicates Judicial Watch’s groundbreaking lawsuits to clean up state voter rolls to help ensure cleaner elections,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

“Judicial Watch and its clients are thrilled with this historic settlement that will clean up election rolls in Los Angeles County and California—and set a nationwide precedent to ensure that states take reasonable steps to ensure that dead and other ineligible voters are removed from the rolls.”

Judicial Watch settled similar statewide challenges in Ohio and Kentucky in 2014 and 2018 respectively. The watchdog also forced the state of Indiana to voluntarily clean up voter rolls and is engaged in an ongoing lawsuit with the State of Maryland.

Judicial Watch alleged in a 2017 lawsuit that Los Angeles County has a registration rate of 112 percent of its age-eligible citizens. The watchdog group alleged, using data published by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, that 11 of California’s 58 counties had registration rates exceeding 100 percent of age-eligible citizens.

California, the most populous state in the union, has a registration rate of approximately 101 percent of age-eligible citizens, the lawsuit alleged.

The California lawsuit revealed that Los Angeles County has not cleaned up its voter rolls for the past 20 years, despite a Supreme Court ruling (pdf) last year making such purges mandatory.

With 10 million residents, Los Angeles County has a bigger population than 41 of 50 U.S. states.

If done fairly, I don't see the problem, If you haven't voted in 4-8 years, why start now? "The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) requires states to remove inactive registrations from voter rolls after two general federal elections. Most inactive registrations belong to voters who have moved to another county or state or have passed away, according to Judicial Watch."
The number of years in an election cycle differs according to the federal office sought. The election cycle spans two years for House candidates; four years forpresidential candidates; and six years for Senate candidates.

No, they're inactive because they didn't voted in 4-8 years.
Well, most of them probably did vote, just not where they were previously registered.

Voter registration is a perfect application for a block chain. making sure that when a person registers to vote at a new address, their registration at the old address is automatically canceled.

I'm sure you just made that number up and have no zero proof that more than 50 people voted illegally in any election.

The commies will just add them back in 10 fold somewhere else!
That's why I said they need to use a block chain, the database technology underlying bitcoin. It's pretty much un-hackable.

(I'm not saying accounts at bitcoin trading platforms are un-hackable, they're often easy targets. But that's a whole different kettle of apples, oranges and elephants from the block chain itself.)

I have a simpler way, voter ID and one ID, one vote! Sure, ID's can be forged but it's better than open voting with no accountability as to who's voting, which is what we have now in many states
