An interesting detail about Los Angeles and the number of individuals who are registered to vote in the county comes at an interesting time in American politics. Right now, the number of people who are registered to vote in Los Angeles County outweighs the number of U.S. citizens, according to Townhall.
A Closer Look at Registered Voters in Los Angeles County
The aforementioned revelation about Los Angeles came after a lawsuit from the right-wing Judicial Watch. The suit alleged that California’s government failed to do away with inactive registered voters. Moreover, the number of voter registrations in Los Angeles County is higher than the individuals who are eligible to vote.
To make matters even worse, California is still unable, or simply choosing not, to divulge whether or not people who are not citizens voted in the June 2018 primary election. The closest the state has come to providing real information about this matter is an announcement from Secretary of State Alex Padilla. Padilla maintains that his office is currently looking into the situation of registered voters.
California has come under fire many times for their radical, far-left leanings, but this latest development is just ridiculous. Los Angeles County ought to be doing their due diligence by following the rules and mandates.
Voting and Illegal Aliens
The news about Los Angeles County’s voters comes at a time where the nation is having some serious conversations about immigration. For quite some time, many conservatives and right-wingers have maintained that Democrats enable illegal aliens for the sake of getting their votes. Democrats and progressives have denied this, but the fact that California cannot confirm whether or not non-citizens voted in their elections is truly not helping their cause.
