Pennsylvania is set to play a major role in deciding the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election.
Key battleground areas include Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional district, located in the western half of the state. The 17th district’s seat is currently held by Democratic incumbent Connor Lamb.
With each election, voter fraud is a concern, particularly in swing states.
Allegheny County, which contains Pittsburgh (the state’s second largest city), has 957,000 registered voters. In the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, Hillary Clinton secured just shy of 56% of the vote in Allegheny County. However, Donald Trump won every other Western Pennsylvania county.
According to the Conservative non-partisan watchdog, Judicial Watch, more than 15% of those voters in Allegheny County are inactive. Moreover, the county is divided into two Congressional districts: Pennsylvania’s 17th and 18th (includes the entire city of Pittsburgh).
Judicial Watch has sent letters to four Pennsylvania counties (including Allegheny), promising a federal lawsuit if the voter rolls are not purged of inactive voters within 90 days.
“Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections and Judicial Watch will insist, in court if necessary, that states follow federal law to clean up their voting rolls,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “It is common sense that voters who die or move away be removed from the voting rolls.”
Feeling the pressure, the Allegheny County Board of Elections has responded to this request. The board informed KDKA that they have started the process of removing 69,000 inactive voters this year.
