[COMMENTS FROM DONNA GARNER: What this article should do is to invigorate every Trump supporter in America to get out and vote in the Mid-Term elections to overcome the large numbers of "ghost voters," particularly in Democrat states. This means each of us has an individual responsibility to vote ourselves and to make sure that our friends and family members vote also - for Republican candidates.
Any Republican candidate is better than any Democrat candidate since the Democrat Party has drifted so far left and has taken every Democrat candidate with it. The Democrat Party has only one thing on its mind: to destroy "anything Trump" which actually means to destroy our Constitutional republic and our rule of law.
We participated in overcoming all obstacles to get Trump elected (including the "ghost voters"), and I believe we will see the same victories in the Mid-Terms. Our best battle tool is the voting box -- that and spending time on our knees in prayer.]

Excerpts from this article:
At least 3.5 million more people are on U.S. election rolls than are eligible to vote.
Some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America's adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud.
The Election Integrity Project of Judicial Watch - a Washington-based legal-watchdog group - analyzed data from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2011-2015 American Community Survey and last month's statistics from the federal Election Assistance Commission. The latter included figures provided by 38 states.
According to Judicial Watch, eleven states gave the EAC insufficient or questionable information. Pennsylvania's legitimate numbers place it just below the over-registration threshold.
My tabulation of Judicial Watch's state-by-state results yielded 462 counties where the registration rate exceeded 100 percent. There were 3,551,760 more people registered to vote than adult U.S. citizens who inhabit these counties.
"That's enough over-registered voters to populate a ghost-state about the size of Connecticut," Judicial Watch attorney Robert Popper told me.
...California's San Diego County earns the enchilada grande. Its 138 percent registration translates into 810,966 ghost voters. Los Angeles County's 112 percent rate equals 707,475 over-registrations. Beyond the official data that it received, Judicial Watch reports that LA County employees "informed us that the total number of registered voters now stands at a number that is a whopping 144 percent of the total number of resident citizens of voting age."
All told, California is a veritable haunted house, teeming with 1,736,556 ghost voters. Judicial Watch last week wrote Democratic secretary of state Alex Padilla and authorities in eleven Golden State counties and documented how their election records are in shambles.
...Ronald Reagan's California has devolved into a reliably far-Left stronghold. While pristine voter rolls should be a given in a constitutional republic with democratic elections, even that improvement might be too little to make America's most populous state competitive in presidential elections.
The same cannot be said for battleground states, in which Electoral College votes can be decided by incredibly narrow margins. Consider the multitude of ghost voters in:
- Colorado: 159,373
- Florida: 100,782
- Iowa: 31,077
- Michigan: 225,235
- New Hampshire: 8,211
- North Carolina: 189,721
- Virginia: 89,979
(For a deeper dive into these data, please download my spreadsheet here.)
...Under federal law, the 1993 National Voter Registration Act and the 2002 Help America Vote Act require states to maintain accurate voter lists. Nonetheless, some state politicians ignore this law. Others go further: Governor Terry McAuliffe (D., Va.) vetoed a measure last February that would have mandated investigations of elections in which ballots cast outnumbered eligible voters.
Even more suspiciously, when GOP governor Rick Scott tried to obey these laws and update Florida's records, including deleting 51,308 deceased voters, Obama's Justice Department filed a federal lawsuit to stop him.Federal prosecutors claimed that Governor Scott's statewide efforts violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act, although it applies to only five of Florida's 67 counties. Then-attorney general Eric Holder and his team behaved as if Martin Luther King Jr. and the Freedom Riders fought so valiantly in order to keep cadavers politically active.
Whether Americans consider vote fraud a Republican hoax, a Democratic tactic, or something in between, everyone should agree that it's past time to exorcise ghost voters from the polls.
