As Democrats and the mainstream media continue to insist that the president’s voter-fraud commission is a scheme to suppress votes, the head of elections in Broward County, Florida, is appearing in federal court in Miami as a defendant in a lawsuit where she will have to explain why Broward has more registered voters than citizens of voting age — a voter registration rate of 103 percent.
And she may also have to try to explain why Broward County, which has the highest number of Democratic voters in the state, has thousands of people over the age of 100 on its roll, and some as old as 130.
Logan Churchwell, the head researcher for the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), which filed a suit against Broward County on behalf of the American Civil Rights Union (ACRU), told LifeZette on Tuesday that he counted “thousands” of centenarians on Broward’s voter roll in data the county submitted to the federal Election Assistance Commission following the 2014 election.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean they’re dead,” he said, “but if you’re 130 years old, either find a gravestone, or call Guinness!”
The case illustrates the very real problem with so many voter rolls in the country, where elected supervisors have often neglected, or even refused, to take steps to ensure that the roll is an accurate list of eligible registered voters.
On Tuesday, Churchwell was waiting to testify in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida in Miami about the failure of the Broward County supervisor of elections, Brenda Snipes, to maintain the county’s voter roll.
The roll, according to the ACRU, potentially includes tens of thousands of names of people who are ineligible to vote.
