In Detroit, Michigan, there are at least 30,000 more registered voters than the number of age-eligible citizens who can vote, according to Government Accountability Institute Research Director Eric Eggers. Speaking to Breitbart News, Eggers explained that ineligible voters will likely receive a ballot for the 2020 election, thanks to Michigan’s leftist vote-by-mail scheme.
This week, Michigan’s Secretary of State, Jocelyn Benson, announced that the state would send absentee ballot applications — not actual absentee ballots — to 7.7 million voters. In response, President Trump threatened to withhold funding from the state.
In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Eggers said ineligible voters could end up receiving mail-in ballots because Detroit’s voter rolls have at least 30,000 more registered voters on them than citizens who are eligible to vote.
“I do think it’s fair to kind of raise eyebrows and some alarms at what’s happening in a state like Michigan … of course, we want people to be able to vote without imperiling their own health,” Eggers said. “But it’s the problems with the voter rolls. The fact remains that many of the voter rolls in this country, 1-in-8 according to the Supreme Court, 24 million voter registrations are wrong or partially inaccurate.”
“In the city of Detroit … according to a lawsuit filed just last year, the city of Detroit itself has over 30,000 more registered voters than citizens of legal voting age,” Eggers continued.
“30,000 people in Detroit at least will receive … an absentee ballot request form,” Eggers said. “Well Donald Trump only won Michigan by less than 11,000 votes in 2016. So this is a state that if it flips … the margins are very small here.”
Eggers said Michigan officials should look to recent mail-in voting problems in Wisconsin’s April 7 primary elections where at least 30,000 mail-in votes were counted after Election Day.
“It led to all kinds of problems in terms of employees weren’t ready for it, the system became overloaded, you had people working over 100 hours a week, you had ballots being misplaced and then not actually being counted and cast,” Eggers said. “It wasn’t exactly perfectly executed.”
“I think this just underscores the dirty secret of the American election system, and that’s this: We remain a third world country when it comes to election technology,” Eggers said.
Detroit has more than 2,500 dead people on its voter rolls, 4,788 registered voters who have been flagged as having potentially registered to vote twice or even three times, and about 16,500 registered voters allegedly do not have dates when they actually registered to vote, according to a lawsuit filed by the Public Interest Legal Foundation.
Recent data has not shown a compelling public health justification for mail-in voting. Wisconsin is one of the only states that held its primary election with in-person voting after the nation’s coronavirus lockdowns began. About 52 of more than 400,000 people were confirmed to have contracted the virus after participating either as voters or poll workers, and none of those cases was fatal. Out of the 413,000 participants, that equals an infection rate below two-hundredths of one percent. Just days later, South Korea held national elections which did not result in any new coronavirus cases.
