Lawsuit filed against Michigan’s top election official for 25,000 dead people on voter rolls

by Summer Lane

A new lawsuit against the Michigan secretary of state has been filed alleging that there are tens of thousands of dead people still on the state voter rolls.

The lawsuit, which is being brought to court by the Public Interest Legal Foundation, cites a potential 25,975 dead voters on the rolls, in addition to alleging that the secretary of state’s office has done nothing to correct the situation since the deceased voters were brought to their attention in September, Just the News reported.

The complaint formally states the following on the subject of the thousands of deceased registrants: 

“The Foundation’s expenditure of significant time and money in Michigan seeking to rectify Defendant’s failure to clean up the voter rolls by removing the surfeit of deceased registrants from such rolls has also forced the Foundation to divert its limited resources from other states with similar issues.”

Unfortunately, the state of Michigan is no stranger to garnering the spotlight for reports of election irregularities. President Donald Trump recently discussed the findings of an election investigation in Michigan in an official statement, asserting that RINO Republicans in the state senate confirmed “that roughly 45,000 ballots were delivered to the TCF with no Chain of Custody at 3:30 and 4:30 a.m. on November 4.” Additionally, 289,866 were sent illegally to people who never requested them. 

President Trump’s statement, in which he cites Michigan’s reports of election fraud

Joe Biden won Michigan in the 2020 presidential election by just over 150,000 votes – forcing Americans to ask themselves difficult questions about the integrity and legality of the presidential race. 

Recently, the state of Michigan has been picking up steam in its fight to audit counties rife with allegations of election fraud. In October, the Election Integrity Force organized an energetic and Trump-endorsed rally at the Michigan capitol in Lansing to boldly call for a statewide election audit. 

This lawsuit against the secretary of state’s office also suggests that there should be a regular maintenance system in place to ensure that the voter roles are accurate in every election, therefore avoiding violations of state law. Their suggestions, coupled with the allegations of the tens of thousands of dead voter registrants on the rolls, isn’t doing Michigan any favors when it comes to voter confidence.

As the 2022 midterms creep closer, Michiganders can only hope that these election issues are straightened out quickly and efficiently.
