Election officials in 28 states count almost 7 million people between them who are registered to vote in more than one place, but they're not eager to publicize their findings, a Watchdog.org correspondent told Newsmax TV on Monday.

"With those 28 states, they arrived at the duplicate number of 6.9 million voters who are registered in one or more states," Kenric Ward of Watchdog.org's Virginia bureau told "MidPoint" host Ed Berliner.

He said those 28 states don't include the country's three most populous: Texas, California and Florida. Add them in, said Ward, and the pool of potentially fraudulent voters could "triple or even quadruple" in number.

Ward offered one reason why the 2014 interstate voter cross-check, conducted jointly by 28 states from Alaska to West Virginia, hasn't made national headlines.

"The mainstream media is very loath to pick up these stories," he said, because vote fraud as a real problem that  "doesn't fit their narrative."

Ward said it's possible to build a system that spots and eliminates duplicate registrations. He said states already do this ably and cooperatively across jurisdictions with drivers' licenses, so, therefore, "Why not have a parallel system of voter registration?"

But he said officials in many states are leery of getting involved.

"They're afraid of being labeled racists or worse, and they just don't want the hassle," said Ward. "These are bureaucrats, elected and appointed, and they just don't want to rock the boat."
