18K PLUS DECEASED VOTERS MAILED BALLOTS IN CLARK COUNTY

Part 2

We wrote a story last week about Clark County resident, Sandy Smith, who passed away 4 years ago, and her name is still on the voter rolls. The current owner of the home received Sandy’s mail in ballot four years after she passed away. So 360 served the Clark County Elections Department with a Nevada Public Records request seeking the total number of deceased names removed from the voter rolls in 2019. Out of 26,623 deaths in Clark County in 2019, the Clark County Elections Department only removed 7,774 names. And the 7,774 names of deceased voters removed by the Clark County Elections Dept were not all folks who passed away in 2019. The Elections Department admitted that they do not use the County Death Certificates to remove deceased names from the voter rolls.

Under the Nevada Open Records Act (NRS.239), revised under SB287 taking effect
October 1, 2 019, we are requesting the following:
1. Please provide any and all data showing the total number of deceased voters removed from both, the lists of active and inactive voters in Clark County for 2019.
2. Please provide any and all data showing the total number of forms for deceased voters
to be removed from both, the lists of active and inactive voter lists were requested and return to your office in Clark County for 2019.
3. Please provide any and all data showing the total number of voters removed from both, the lists of active and inactive voters in Clark County for 2019.
4. Please provide any and all data showing the total number of non-citizens removed from both, the lists of active and inactive voters in Clark County for 2019.

The following is their response to some of our request

2019 stats

Total number of voters registered; 1,276,802

Total number of death in Clark County: 26,623 Source: Southern Nevada Health District  

https://www.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/news-info/statistics-surveillance-reports/vital-records-statistics/

7,774 names were removed because they were deceased 

23,548 names were removed in total

30 names were removed because they were not-citizens

According to Nevada SOS’s website stats, Clark County had 179,204 inactive voters at the end of 2019 on their voter rolls. Its pretty reasonable to assume most of the inactive voters listed are deceased or moved to other states. Keep in mind, people who passed away last year will still be listed as active voters if their names were not removed. The Clark County elections Department acknowledged that they do not use the Clark County Death Certificates to remove names from the voter rolls. They wait for folks to report the names of people who passed away. Some 18,800 deceased names of people who Clark County Health Department issued Death Certificates for may still be registered to vote, (just in 2019). By any measure the Clark County Election Voter rolls are riddled with deceased and non-citizen voters are ripe for fraud.

No information as been provided for the disparity between the number of deaths in Clark County and the number of deceased people removed from the voter rolls.
