Why are so many NC voters missing?

AUG 18, 2014–RALEIGH, NC—The Voter Integrity Project announced today that North Carolina’s statewide election rolls now contain 739,041 voter registrations from people the election officials can no longer find.

“These missing voters are mostly people who moved away without telling the election office,” said Jay DeLancy, Director of VIP, “but the alarming recent growth in this voter category points to a more systemic problem.”

Missing Voters.JPGThere were 460,065 such voters at the beginning of 2007, but that number has exploded to 739,041 (a 62.3 percent growth) since then.  The only negative growth since then was in 2012, when VIP discovered nearly 30,000 deceased persons registered to vote.

“In an artfully deceptive ploy, election officials named these missing voters ‘inactive,’” DeLancy said, “implying they just sat out an election or two, but these people are genuinely missing and the public has been kept in the dark.”Missing voter graph

North Carolina law (§ 163-82.7) requires election officials to complete two mailings to the voter at their registration address without response before a process begins that will eventually remove the missing (or “inactive”) voter.

“The law assumes that postal employees never make mistakes, so if the first letter is lost, thrown away or otherwise not returned, the person returns to ‘Active’ status,” he said, “but even if the first verification letter is returned undeliverable, election officials still can’t remove the voter.”

Trial opening day

Intel Report 7/7/2014

(Winston Salem, NC) North Carolina’s trial of the century began today, in a courtroom that seats 100 spectators; so Pat Klienmeier (Forsyth County VIP Leader) and I braved the heat in a futile effort to get in on the opening day. The problem was the lovely air conditioned bus that offloaded 50-60 rent-a-mob activists just …

Intel Report (6/19/2014)

Raleigh, NC—June 19—The appeasement cycle to erode open and honest elections gained momentum this week in North Carolina. While wandering the halls, begging Senators to kill the Everette Harris Act (a feel-good bill that would have allowed Everette Harris’ vote to count), a highly placed elected official confirmed that a key Senator “had killed” the three election …
