One oft-cited remark about Trump is that he lost the popular vote. Given that lot of Republicans in California don’t even bother voting because they don’t have any candidates to vote for, with the following fact, perhaps the outcome could have been different.
Based on our review of 2016 EAC EAVS report , the 2011-2015 U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, and the most recent California total active and total inactive voter registration records , California is failing to comply with the voter registration list maintenance requirements of Section 8 of the NVRA. For example, a comparison of the 2011- 2015 U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, and the most recent California active and inactive voter registration records shows there were more total registered voters than there were adults over the age of 18 living in each of the following eleven (11)counties : Imperial (102%), Lassen (102%), Los Angeles (112%),Monterey (104%), San Diego (138%), San Francisco (114%), San Mateo (111%), Santa Cruz (109%),Solano (111%), Stanislaus (102%), and Yolo (110%).
Our own research shows that the situation in these counties is, if anything, worse than the foregoing data suggest . For example, we contacted Los Angeles County directly this past June. At that time, county officials informed us that the total number of registered voters now stands at a number that is a whopping 144% of the total number of resident citizens of voting age. In our experience, these kinds of registration rates indicate a failure to comply with the vote.
