Why Does Michigan Have More Voters than Eligible Citizens?

Dead vote

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has some explaining to do as it was revealed that 53 of her state’s 83 counties have more registered voters than eligible voting residents. An additional 23 counties have a “suspiciously high” voter registration rate of 90%, which is far higher than the national average. The Republican National Committee (RNC) has filed a lawsuit against Benson and is demanding answers.

The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) holds states accountable for maintaining accurate voter information. States are responsible for removing ineligible voters in the case of death, address changes, or lawsuits, and must report accurate figures to maintain fair elections.

Voter fraud in Michigan has been a prevalent problem. “This is not the first time Michigan has failed to abide by the NVRA’s requirements. In 2020, Michigan election officials were sued in this Court for violating the NVRA. See Daunt v. Benson, Doc. 1, No. 1:20-cv-522 (W.D. Mich. June 9, 2020),” the lawsuit revealed. At the time, Michigan had one county with registration rates in excess of 100% of the voting-age population, and 15 counties with rates above 90%. The state defendants moved to dismiss the case, but this Court denied the motions.” The Secretary of State publicly canceled the registration of 177,000 voters and no one was held accountable and the situation worsened.

Another lawsuit from 2020 found that Benson failed to disqualify 26,000 voters from registering, despite the fact that they were DEAD. Now these people did not simply pass prior to the election. In one instance, as reported by the Federalist, a person who passed away in 1990 was registered to vote blue in 2020. US District Court Judge Jane Beckering of the Western District of Michigan dismissed the lawsuit, siding with Benson, claiming, “the record demonstrates that deceased voters are removed from Michigan’s voter rolls on a regular and ongoing basis.”

This is blatant voter fraud happening at the state level. Michigan attempted to remove Donald Trump from the 2024 US Presidential Election ballot but the Supreme Court rejected that decision in December 2023. The establishment does not plan to fight a fair battle this November and plots are already in place to alter the election, removing our fundamental right to vote for our elected officials.

I suspect the same issue would apply when, hopefully when, the RNC investigates other states with suspiciously high voter registration rates.
