‘Fix California’ Launches Statewide Legal Inspection of Current County Voter Rolls

Grenell’s legal team is identifying high concentrations of inaccurate or poorly maintained voter rolls

California’s November 3, 2020 election was marred by significant voting and registration irregularities, the Globe reported in June, following an alarming report by the Election Integrity Project California.

Press play to hear a narrated version of this story, presented by AudioHopper.

Mass irregularities in California’s registration and voting numbers continue to erode voter confidence, which is why Ric Grenell and his team at Fix California have launched a statewide legal survey analyzing the current status of voter rolls throughout the state, and they are prepared to start suing counties.

Some California counties have an astoundingly high number of ineligible registrants:

Sacramento County: 36,737, Orange County: 92,014, San Diego County: 247,671, Los Angeles County: 1,138,910, even tiny Alpine County with 924 eligible citizens has 85 ineligible registrants.

It is important to note that California’s National Voter Registration Act Manual says: “[c]ounties must maintain all records concerning the implementation of programs and activities conducted for the purpose of ensuring the accuracy and currency of official lists of eligible voters.” (California NVRA Manual, Chapter 4, Section I n.2)

The California Globe has talked with Richard “Ric” Grenell several times – and again this week – about his long term “Fix California” plan, which places a specific focus on legal, free and fair elections.

Grenell, the former Ambassador to Germany and President Donald Trump’s former Director of National Intelligence, says in California, state and county election officials have abandoned their responsibility to protect elections and ensure that the voices of Californians are heard. He says Fix California is committed to holding these officials accountable while establishing a better process that protects every legal vote.

Fix California has already contacted 26 of the largest counties in California, and put them on notice that they plan to inspect records related to county voter list maintenance obligations, through California Public Records Act requests.

Grenell says his team at Fix California is prepared to sue 26 counties – “Clean up the voter rolls or we’ll take you to court,” Grenell said.

Grenell reports they have been strategically and systematically working to address all three pillars of Fix California: (1) Election Integrity, (2) Voter Registration, (3) Education Reform.

As Grenell explained, “this is not a sexy, quick fix like one hyped-up statewide race. This is a four-year campaign to fix California and to do the long-term reforms that we know we need.”

With the 26 county information requests including Los Angeles County, San Diego, Riverside, Kern, Fresno, Ventura, Placer, Orange, and Sacramento, Fix California is looking for inactive registrations, voter registrations cancelled, registrants not satisfying the citizenship requirements for registration, deceased registrants, individuals who moved out of state, the number of voter applicants providing applications to vote with either a blank affirmation of U.S. Citizenship or an affirmation of non-citizenship for 2016 to date, out-of-state change of address requests.

These public records requests will allow Fix California to cross check voter data with the California Secretary of State, Department of Motor Vehicles, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Postal Service’s National Change of Address database, California Attorney General, any California Superior Court, the County Health Systems, county and city district attorneys’ offices, and county and city election departments.

This is cross checking which should have been going on all along by counties. And that’s Grenell’s concern: “through our work on the data front, we are identifying key areas where there appears to be high concentrations of inaccurate or poorly maintained voter rolls.”

Grenell is right. As the Globe recently reported, California has 1.8 million more registered voters than it should – that we know of.

The Election Integrity Project identified critical problems with the voter rolls:

  • 124,000 more votes counted in California’s November 3, 2020 election than voters recorded as voting in that election. Most of the discrepancy driven by 116,000 vote-by-mail ballots with no apparent voter identified in VoteCal’s voting histories? Click here for a list by county.
  • More than 7,700 voters have TWO November 3, 2020 votes credited to their voting histories. These are two votes credited to each of 7,700 unique (non-duplicated) registration ID numbers in the state database. This indicates mass double voting, a significant programming error in the state’s registration system, or both.
  • California has 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible citizens. Why did this overage rise 72% in the 2020 election cycle? Click here for a list by county.
  • California’s on-line and DMV registration systems changed 33,000 foreign-born voters’ birthplaces of record to “California” or “United States,” potentially masking non-citizens unlawfully registered to vote. Similarly, 76,000 birthplaces changed from another U.S. state to California? Click here for a chart of birthplace changes.

Grenell’s Fix California is also committed to registering and engaging a new, diverse coalition of pro-freedom Californians around issues and causes that will improve the lives of every resident. They are concerned because many hardworking Californians are not registering to vote.

As for fixing what ails California, Grenell says he watched closely as Stacey Abrams came up with a 4-year plan to “fix” Georgia. “We thought at the time, ‘oh c’mon man,’” Grenell said. “But, we must understand her vision of 4-years… and now we have two Democratic Senators from Georgia – a (formerly) red state,” he said. “I want to do to California what she did to Georgia.”

“We’re not going to cheat like Abrams, but you’ve got to be in awe of what she accomplished.”

“We will be focused on needs, county by county,” Grenell said. “Anyone involved in politics not talking about voter integrity won’t get support. There’s a huge appetite to fix the problems.”

  1. Thank you for your reporting! I’ve been wondering if “Fix California” was just another donor embezzlement fund, or a functional organization. I hope the efforts of Grenell & co. can make a difference.

    1. I agree, I really hope they can clean the voting up and give confidence back to Californian’s that their vote counts.

  2. Fix California is doing what the CaGOP and RNC should have started doing years ago. The CaGOP and RNC are impotent organizations with failing leaders at this point, so I don’t give any money to either. My $$$ will go to Fix California and like organizations.

    1. Amen, Raymond!

      Jessica Millan Patterson & her motley crew can go POUND SAND – and STOP sending me pleas for money – you don’t DO ANYTHING of any importance with it so you’re being CUT OFF – I’ll send my small contributions to Grenell’s group… or Judicial Watch, who’s also pursuing similar activities to bring the corrupt Democrat voter fraud “machine” to heel…

  3. Ric Grenell’s work is so important to Californians! Thank God he has implemented a legal system to root out the corruption or to be generous, the inept actions of county election officials.
    We must have fair elections in order to protect our constitutional republic.
    Clean House, Mr. Grenell!

  4. YES! This is wonderful. Grenell & Co. quietly working behind the scenes to make California more sane! Grateful. Maybe, just maybe, there is a glimmer of hope for election integrity in California? Maybe we can at least move toward “clean enough” elections? Fingers crossed.

  5. It’s time to get the DMV out of voter registration as it was designed for corruption. First, citizens that want to vote in an election; must register at your local county registrar’s office. Second, we must enact voter identification laws requiring valid government identification that proves American citizenship and residency. Our current voting system in California is rife with corruption that has millions of fraudulent voter registrations in the state.

    1. Yes times a THOUSAND, Chris!!!

      I believe that was part of the Democrat deception – under the guise of “fairness” they’ve moved to the “motor voter” laws under the (racist) idea that lower socioeconomic people are incapable of registering to vote so they have to be babied by auto-registering through the DMV, a department that is NOTORIOUS for inefficiency, waste, abuse and bureaucracy for DECADES in California…

      And the DMV systems are a complete dumpster fire, but it probably provides cover for the Democrat corruption and misuse / malfeasance of data…

  6. I appreciate your efforts, but as soon as ballot harvesters collect all the junk mail ballots and swing the recall to Newsom, the doors will be slammed in your face. You had better hire a food taster, Ric.

  7. OANN reported July 16, 2021, that the Arizona Senate Audit consultant found Dominion Voting machines employed by Maricopa County during the Nov 3, 2020, election were connected to the Internet and were hacked.

    For the last ten years, about 40 California counties have used Dominion Voting machines for their elections. Have these machines been hacked and connected to the Internet during recent elections?

    1. John T, the Arizona Senate Audit will make or break the voting fraud case because it’s a “forensic audit”. Right now they are at a critical point because Maricopa County is refusing to turn over their routers for inspection. What is the county afraid of? The routing tables will show if any data were transmitted over the internet and where to; along with showing the time stamps. Other states like Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania are waiting to see what comes out of Arizona. That’s a good question about counties in California that use Dominion and other machines.

      1. P.S. Actually, the routing table’s LOG files are what holds the information about each action that requires use of the router. For example, if you and I are on the network and exchange data files. Log files are usually just plain .txt files and each line in the file is a separate action done by the router. Actions are written to the file continuously as they occur each day, 24/7.

  8. Here’s an idea. Send everyone in California over the age of 18 a jury duty notice, and just wait for the ones to reply saying they can’t serve because they’re not citizens. Keep in mind that jury duty selection is taken from voter rolls. You’ll solve two problems with one action, remove illegals from the voter rolls, and know where they’re living for deportation.
