Judicial Watch says in its 2020 study of voter registration data that Alaska is among eight states with statewide voter registration rates exceeding 100% of those actually eligible to be registered to vote.
Alaska’s voter registration rate is listed at 111% by Judicial Watch.
According to the conservative watchdog group, 353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens.
In addition to Alaska having too many registered voters, the group named Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
The September 2020 study collected the most recent registration data posted online by the states themselves. This data was then compared to the Census Bureau’s most recent five-year population estimates, gathered by the American Community Survey (ACS) from 2014 through 2018.
Must Read Alaska’s math is different from Judicial Watch’s math, but still shows a significant number of over-registrants.
According to the Division of Elections, Alaska has 598,737 registered voters as of Dec. 3, 2020. The U.S. Census says that 24.6% of Alaskans are under the age of 18, which would mean 551,585 Alaskans are of voting age, leaving over 47,150 excess voter registrations on the books in Alaska, or approximately 8.66 percent too many registered voters.
