Judicial Watch sounded the alarm on voter fraud on Monday ahead the Iowa caucuses.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch on Monday announced that eight Iowa counties have more voter registrations than eligible voters.
There are at least 18,658 extra names on the voter rolls in Iowas, Judicial Watch reported.
The watchdog group also reported that Polk County has an unusually high rate of 95.9% of total eligible voters registered.
Via Judicial Watch:
“Judicial Watch announced that eight Iowa counties have more voter registrations than their eligible voting-age population. According to Judicial Watch’s analysis of data released by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) in 2019 and the most recent U.S. Census Bureau’s five-year American Community Survey, eight Iowa counties are on the list of 378 counties nationwide that have more voter registrations than citizens living there who are old enough to vote, i.e., counties where registration rates exceed 100%. These 378 counties combined had about 2.5 million registrations over the 100%-registered mark. In Iowa, there are at least 18,658 “extra names” on the voting rolls in the eight counties at issue.
The chart below details the eight Iowa counties’ registration rate percentages:
Reg Rate Total Population
Dallas County 114.8 80,864
Johnson County 107.9 114,425
Lyon County 102.5 11,475
Madison County 102.5 15,720
Poweshiek County 102.1 18,428
Dickinson County 100.9 17,000
Scott County 100.8 171,493
Warren County 100.5 48,630
“Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections and Iowa need to undertake a serious effort to address its voting rolls,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
