The city of Detroit has a major problem with their voter registration. This has led to a lawsuit from The Public Interest Legal Foundation against the city for failing to maintain their voter rolls. Voter data is important to maintain accurate numbers for local, state and federal election statistics.
In addition to the 2,500 dead registered voters, the lawsuit alleges that almost 4,800 voters have been registered multiple times. The lack of control over the voter registration program leaves this area highly susceptible to fraud. This mostly liberal city has a large amount of “ghost” voters that could sway a major election.
The city of Detroit showed that it lacks the competence required to its citizens. GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox commented on the situation and she noted the fraud and incompetence in Detroit.
“When thousands of dead people are registered to vote and there are more people registered than are eligible to vote in the city of Detroit either someone is trying to commit fraud or there is gross incompetence within the Detroit city clerk’s office”
-Laura Cox (Michigan GOP Chairwoman)
