Close to half a million ballots sent to California voters who have moved or died

The November election in California is going to be an honest as an election in Venezuela or Cuba.  Hundreds of thousands of ballots have been sent to the dead, the illegal aliens and those that moved out of State more than a decade ago.  We have postal workers destroying ballots, throwing them away and under the new rules, NO observers will be within seeing distance to observe if a signature on an absentee ballot is real or a forgery.  Corruption?  As bad as any two bit dictatorship.

“The local CBS station interviewed a number of residents and business owners who received ballots in the mail that didn’t belong there. Margaret Richards of Sherman Oaks was sent a ballot. The problem is that Ms. Richards has been living in Tennessee for the past sixteen years. One Monrovia resident received a ballot for the person who sold her the house she now owns fifteen years ago. The previous owners now live in Texas. In theory, any time a ballot is sent back to the post office marked as undeliverable because the resident no longer lives there, the voter’s registration record is supposed to be deactivated. But the woman in question claims to have done that every time she received any election material but they’re still coming. And what about all of the people who moved within the state but haven’t updated their registration yet? Will they be provided a way to vote?

It looks to me like California has surpassed Chicago as he most corrupt place to hold an election.  At least in Chicago they do not pretend to run honest elections.

Close to half a million ballots sent to California voters who have moved or died

Jazz Shaw, Hot Air,  10/17/20   

Why do you suppose California Republicans are setting up their own ballot drop boxes at churches and gun shops to offer voters a safe way to ensure their votes make it to election officials for counting? Do you suppose they have some concerns about how well the mass mail-in voting system will perform when it’s put to the full test on November 3rd? Perish the thought. I’m sure everything will be fine. Well… nearly everything. But we might not be entirely confident about the eventual fate of roughly 400,000 ballots that went out this month. That’s because their voter rolls don’t appear to have been tended very well over the years and that huge slug of ballots went to people who had either moved out of the state or taken up residence in cemeteries. (CBS Los Angeles)

Millions of California ballots have been delivered to residents across the state as early voting begins for the 2020 general election, but some have gone to people who should no longer be registered to vote in the state.

A new study from the Election Integrity Project California has found that close to 400,000 ballots have been sent to people who moved or died.

“The fear is that people who are dishonest could vote those ballots and attempt to get them counted,” said Evelyn Swenson, who works with the organization. “What kind of confidence to the people of California have in the system when they’re getting ballots from their deceased loved one 10 years ago or someone who never lived there or someone who moved 10 years ago? That hurts the confidence in the election.”

If only someone had warned them about this. Oh, wait… that’s right. We’ve been shouting this from the rooftops for most of the year. States like Washington, where they do full mail-in voting every year have the system in fairly good shape, but it took them years to get there. They had to clean up their voter rolls entirely and then develop better ways to track when people are born, when they die, and if they move. California hasn’t had nearly enough time to seriously take on that challenge. As a result, ballots are showing up in all sorts of incorrect locations.

The local CBS station interviewed a number of residents and business owners who received ballots in the mail that didn’t belong there. Margaret Richards of Sherman Oaks was sent a ballot. The problem is that Ms. Richards has been living in Tennessee for the past sixteen years. One Monrovia resident received a ballot for the person who sold her the house she now owns fifteen years ago. The previous owners now live in Texas. In theory, any time a ballot is sent back to the post office marked as undeliverable because the resident no longer lives there, the voter’s registration record is supposed to be deactivated. But the woman in question claims to have done that every time she received any election material but they’re still coming. And what about all of the people who moved within the state but haven’t updated their registration yet? Will they be provided a way to vote?

But hey… nothing serious could go wrong with this, right? Unless, of course, somebody decides to “test the system” by sending in the ballot anyway like that guy in Florida did for his dead wife. That wouldn’t happen though, would it? Naw. I’m sure he was the only one.

I really have to take a moment here and offer a tip of the hat to the local CBS team in Los Angeles. Unlike their national parent network, they’ve been doing a bang-up job in uncovering fraud and incompetence in the California state government. They’ve reported on the huge problems the state is having with unemployment fraud, prompting the government to take action. And now they’re all over the mail-in voting issues. Well done, folks.

  1. And the Lying democRATS say the election will be safe and fair… BULLSH*T!! WITH THIS GOING ON.. THE ELECTION WILL NOT BE FAIR…. FRAUD ALL OVER THE PLACE!!!!
    GOD HELP OUR COUNTRY!!!!

    VOTING NEEDS TO BE IN PERSON, ONLY CITIZENS WHO ARE ALIVE!!!!! NO ILLEGAL ALIENS!!!!!

    THIS IS VERY MUCH WORSE THAN RUSSIA INTERFERRING!!!!

    All good reasons to return to a tried and true system – only vote on election day – provide ID – and for those who have a legitimate reason not to vote on election day allow a short period of time to request an absentee ballot. And, send out ballots to our military warriors who are overseas at least 8 weeks early so that their ballots can be returned in time.
    Count the ballots after the polls close on election day. If ballots are not in hand, too bad – they won’t be counted. Announce preliminary results as soon s possible on election night. Complete the canvas within 2 weeks of the polls closing and announce the results.

    • Vote on election day? Now there is a novel idea.

      Valid ID and finger print? Under penalty of perjury? Getting better all the time.

      Fran you just might be on something here.

    It makes me wonder if my parents still get ballots to vote at their old address in Reseda since they’ve moved from California to Montana over twenty years ago.

  4. This article brings to mind a saying if I am not mistaken came from a California resident some time ago. “My Dad never would have voted Democrat when he was alive”!

  5. Fed up with CA says

    I have lived in my home for over 17 years now and still get a ballot for the people who moved out of state when I moved in. I have tried to send the ballots back time and again but to no avail. Makes me wonder 1) is someone voting for them at the polls since no ID is required or 2) the powers that be don’t want to take them off the rolls because they are registered Dems?

    Why do I wonder about #2…… Others who have moved from here to other states have not received any ballots after a few years and I know for a fact they were NOT Dems. Ergo, my assumption is that Sheila must be a dem or someone is voting fraudulently for her.

    I got a postcard addressed to her a month or so ago, taking a poll to see if she still was at my address. There was a box to check if no longer here. I checked the box, a signature was required… I wrote that she could not sign as she was NOT here and had been gone for 17 years and for them to get a clue…. Still I got a ballot for her……. I guess the people working at registrars office can not read English.

    California Democrat party has destroyed the election process in California.
    They refuse to update the voter registration database.
    Any questionable registration defaults to democrat.
    Politicians seats are clearly up for sale, which explains all the non-California money spent here.
    Radio and TV clearly shows preferences to democrats.
    WORST OF ALL, ONLY TOP TWO NAMES ON BALLOT ENSURES A DEMOCRAT WIN.
    WHEN YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE ONE OF TWO DEMOCRATS, DO NOT VOTE FOR EITHER ONE.

    wake up Californians, STOP VOTING FOR DEMOCRATS to help save our state.

  7. Judicial Watch has sued this crappy State over this. AND you can recall Pretty Boy Newsom at

    use fingerprints, at least the dead won’t be counted, Prints can be checked against DMV data base to confirm

    • Remember the DMV registered 150,000 illegals as democrats before they discovered it was not legal? California has not had a fair election in over 20 years and if you talk to a democrat they think paying high taxes is just ok. After all it gives non citizens a free education and health care, Time to rebel.

  9. Here is something we should all think about. When I attempt cash a check, I have to show them my identification. When I visit a federal building, I have to show my identification. When I go to my medical provider, I have to show them my identification. When I rent a car, or equipment, I have to show my identification. If I am stopped by the police, I have to show my identification. When boarding an aircraft at the local airport, they want to see some ID. Try to buy a gun and see what you have to do. It seems that the only time that I don’t have to show any identification is when go to my polling place to vote! Why?

    We have a couple of very successful companies, (UPS and FedEx) that keep track of millions of items every single day, and they know where each of these items are from time they are picked up to time and place of delivery. If they are so successful at tracking the smallest to the largest item, why can’t “Our Government” keep track the legal citizens of this country? Especially those who are still alive? The IRS keeps track of me, and they never forget me, or my address.

    Perhaps it is time to hold someone truly accountable for our election process and voting by legal citizens of our communities, our states and how many legal ballots should be out there being cast. At my polling place, all I have to do is verbally tell them my name and I get a ballot. Is there something wrong with this process? I believe there is something “Very Wrong,” and I believe its way past time to fix it.

    “The November election in California is going to be an honest as an election in Venezuela or Cuba.” Steve I think you are wrong about that. CA election will more resemble the old Soviet Union elections where people like Gorbachev, Chernenko or Andropoy would get 99% of the vote. Here in CA any Democrat will get 99% of the vote regardless of how people actually vote.

  11. The FEDERAL GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO STEP IN AND GIVE ALL CALIFORNIANS A FAIR AND HONEST ELECTION..PADILLA IS AS CORRUPT AS THEY COME…

    @Steve Frank, “A new study from the Election Integrity Project California has found that close to 400,000 ballots have been sent to people who moved or died.” PLEASE add link to EIPCa, we need support to funds purchase of more data after the election to see if any of these ballots were voted! Thank you

  13. You know , most if not all of the problems with our voting system mentioned in the other comments here are true. Yet we do nothing about it. We vent a little online but do not find the time and dedication to even recall and or demand the arrest of obvious criminal Treason being committed by our state Government. Why would anything change if there is no penalty for what they are doing ? We need to organize and remove these traitors from power but I do feel that they would not leave without a fight brought against us with our own tax monies and abuse of our judicial systems . Whatever it takes , we must remove the current Leftwing Socialist Oligarchs from power here or live in servitude while condemning our children and grandchildren to slavery and oppression.
