TOP DEMOCRATS Worried After Thousands of Illegal Voters Unregister in Colorado
Top Democrats are worried after thousands of likely illegal voters cancelled their registrations in Colorado.
More than 3,000 Colorado voters withdrew their registrations since the Trump administration’s election integrity commission requested available voter information from the states.
Hillary Clinton defeated President Donald Trump in Colorado by 136,000 votes.
Democrats are worried that may change if more voters withdraw their registrations.
Democrats are pretending this is voter suppression rather than the obvious voter fraud that caused voters to deregister.
Top officials in the Democratic National Committee are worried about a sudden drop in voter registrations in Colorado, concerned that President Donald Trump’s new election commission is encouraging Democrats across the country to remove themselves from the electoral grid for fear of revealing personal information to the GOP leadership.
Led by DNC Chairman Tom Perez, they’ve begun an effort — in conjunction with the Colorado Democratic Party — to persuade other members of the party’s rank-and-file to stay registered.
“If you unregister, you are giving a victory to proponents of voter suppression,” Perez said in an interview with McClatchy.
Denying the GOP a victory on this issue, he said, is the party’s new rallying cry.
“That’s our message,” Perez said. “And we’re out there delivering that message in every way possible.”
More than 3,000 Colorado voters have unregistered since Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity requested personal data on voters in late June, according to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office. The commission, created to investigate alleged voter fraud in states across the country, drew bipartisan backlash this month with its request, with officials in both parties declining to provide the information out of concern for voters’ privacy.
