A study of Palm Beach County, Florida, voter registration rolls showed nearly 24,000 records with wide ranging irregularities.
The study, released this week, was done by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) and detailed in a report by The Washington Free Beacon.
“Concerns ranged from apparent clerical errors memorialized in voter records to evidence of dead and double voting,” PILF said in the report. “Seemingly unlawful claims of business and government addresses were also found used as residential ones.
“Perhaps most alarming of all, apparent noncitizens were documented registering to vote in Palm Beach County – sometimes while admitting the immigration status on the voter applications.”
In short, the report said: “Decades of mismanagement have left Palm Beach County’s voter rolls in disarray and vulnerable to foreign attack.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis removed Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher after the 2018 midterms.
“The 2018 midterm was marred by recount delays and other alarming events, which went on to gain national attention in the days and weeks following election day,” the PILF report noted.
The report also said an inaccurate voter rolls “makes the county vulnerable to hackers who could manipulate or delete data without the inconsistencies or changes being notice.”
It said the issues discovered in the study indicate voter list maintenance over the years has “either been lax, inconsistent, ignored or ineffective.”
The study concluded: “Reasonable and proper voter list maintenance requires ownership of, and sweating the small details. Each weakness baked into the voter registry is now an election security threat.”
