The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), headed up by J. Christian Adams, has sent statutory notice letters to 37 counties in several states – including North Carolina, informing them that they appear to not be complying with the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). Here is an example of the letter sent to election officials in Colorado, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The PILF news release says that publicly-available data showed that the counties either had “more registered voters than eligible living citizens, or a number of registrants that is implausibly high.”
Below are the North Carolina counties receiving notices – the list includes the top five counties in terms of voter registration in the state. If you live in one of these 12 counties, now is a good time to get involved and contact the members of the local Board to see what is being done about these serious problems.
This isn’t the first time PILF has sent notices to counties around the country.
“In August 2015, PILF sent notice letters to 141 counties across the country with more registrants than people alive. PILF has since filed litigation in federal court against two of these counties whose voter rolls had become corrupted. The first suit, against Clarke County, Mississippi, resulted in a consent decree that will force local election officials to begin removing ineligible voters prior to 2016 election. The other, against Noxubee County, Mississippi, is still pending.
The latest set of letters brings the grand total to 178 counties that may be violating federal law. Recent studies estimate the number of inaccurate or invalid voter registrations may exceed 20 million.”
The PILF release also stated that they had “also asked officials in New Hampshire and Wisconsin to provide information about efforts to detect non-citizens and prevent aliens from participating in elections in those states.”
I just wish they had asked the same question of North Carolina.

This needs to be publicized by the news media as well, sort of a watch-dog brand of journalism. Health Departments should be required to send such as list to “all” counties in the state, not just where the person died. Sending to Social Security should be on that list as well.

This problem IS being looked at here in North Carolina. Visit the Voter Integrity Project website for the latest news about 250 voter challenges being filed in Cumberland County. Also, review the efforts being made to prosecute fraudulent voters and address the Voter ID issue with the Legislature. Then visit the Fayetteville Observer website and search for “Hyers”. The Observer has multiple articles about the effort to remove ineligible voters going all the way back to 2014. There is also now an editorial on the Observer website addressing the latest batch of 250 challenges.
