Suspicious Voter Registration Data

Michigan has at least half a million more registered voters than voting-age citizens

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Michigan’s population is just shy of 10 million people currently, and 21.5% are under 18 years old, which means 78.5% are 18 years or older. According to data from 2018 from the Migration Policy Institute, 322,424 people in Michigan are noncitizens. And this number keeps increasing every year. That leaves the number of voting-age citizens to be at most (10 million – 322,424) x 78.5% = 7.6 million.

But according to its secretary of state website, Michigan has 8,131,461 registered voters as of Nov. 18, 2020. That means Michigan has at least half a million more registered voters than voting-age citizens.

Though Michigan now has automatic voter registration, this program only started in Sept. 2019. Certainly not every resident has had a chance to apply for or update their driver’s license or personal ID cards yet—when eligible citizens were automatically registered to vote—in the past year or so. That means not every eligible voter is necessarily a registered voter yet. Then who are the more than half a million people on the voter registration list, but not voting-age citizens in Michigan? Did they vote in the 2020 election?

P.O. boxes illegally disguised as residential addresses

According to the Federal Voting Assistance Program, when requesting an absentee ballot, the voter is required to provide their actual residence, and cannot list a P.O. box address as their residence.

Matt Braynard, the leader of the Voter Integrity Project and former Trump Data and Strategy Director, explained his findings in an interview with Crossroads host Joshua Philipp. Braynard said he found over 1,000 voters in Georgia who listed themselves at addresses that are post office boxes or other facilities the Postal Service leases or owns like FedEx or UPS stores. They also disguised their P.O. boxes as apartments.

Matt Braynard said, “So rather than saying PO Box 123, the address is listed as Apartment 123. And that’s a major red flag. And what’s also remarkable about these individuals, is that almost all of them voted early absentee, very few voted in person. So that really raises a red flag because they’re illegally registered. And it’s—and not just incidentally, but intentionally meant to deceive by listing suite number or unit number rather than technically what it is, which is a box number.” For example, a voter listed his or her address as 724 Charlie Smith Senior Highway, Saint Marys, Georgia, Apartment 5402, even though that is a post office address. 

Over 13,000 new voter registrations in Nevada with missing sex or date of birth

The Washington Examiner reported that in an affidavit filed in a Republican election challenge, a data scientist found a huge surge of incomplete voter registrations and those giving casinos and temporary RV parks as ‘their home or mailing addresses’ in the Third Congressional District that covers the southern third of the state and much of Clark County.

From Dorothy Morgan’s affidavit. Data expert Dorothy Morgan found this “historically strange” spike in incomplete voter registrations in Democratic Clark County, Nev.    

The data scientist, Dorothy Morgan, found that 68 voter registrations missed the critical data in the last presidential election. In 2020, it was 13,372.

What’s more, 74% of the incomplete registrations took place between July and September this year.

In her two-page affidavit, provided to Washington Examiner, Morgan wrote, “This investigation found over 13K voters whose voter registration information revealed no sex or date of birth. Not only does this mean we cannot verify whether these voters are old enough to vote, but it is also historically strange: While one does not expect voter registration information to be perfect, it is very strange that there were very, very few of these kinds of imperfect records with missing or invalid information until this year – when there are 13,372 of them.”
