The state of California boasts eleven counties where there are more registered voters than the total number of citizens who are eligible to vote, according to a new study by Judicial Watch.

On August 1 the conservative watchdog group threatened to sue the state of California over Secretary of State Alex Padilla's refusal to comply with the Trump administration's National Voter Registration Act, citing numerous examples of voter roll discrepancies.

Voter fraud runs rampant in California's urban centers

According to Judicial Watch, public records reveal that eleven counties show a greater number of registered voters than total citizens of legal voting age.

At the top of the list is San Diego County, where the number of registered voters exceeds the adult population by 138 percent. The next biggest offenders are San Francisco County (114%), Los Angeles County (112%) and Solano County (111%).

The records cited by Judicial Watch were obtained through the Election Assistance Commission's 2016 voting survey.

“California’s voting rolls are an absolute mess that undermines the very idea of clean elections," declared Tom Fitton, president of the conservative watchdog group. Fitton warned that he would file a lawsuit if California refuses to address the issue.

Judicial Watch has given the California Secretary of State ninety days to resolve the issue before they take the state to court.

The group has also notified eleven other states of its intention to sue unless they comply with the National Voter Registration Act. Those states are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Since the warning was issued, New York has agreed to turn over the information requested by the president's voter fraud commission.

In spite of credible evidence, Alex Padilla refuses to admit there's a problem

Padilla, however, has repeatedly stated that he will not comply with the National Voter Registration Act. Calling the voter fraud commission a "sham," Padilla said last week that California would continue to resist the mandate.

“I have a lot of reasons to not participate or legitimize this commission," Padilla told the San Francisco Chronicle on Friday.

In July, Padilla blasted Trump's voter fraud commission, declaring that the commission was "created to make it harder for eligible citizens to register" and to indulge the President’s "outrageous lie that millions voted illegally in last year’s election.”

If the statistics compiled by Judicial Watch are any indication, however, it would appear that more residents in at least eleven California counties have registered to vote than the total number of residents who are legally allowed to vote.
