King County election fraud report short on details, big on claims

The Voter Research Project says it found 444 “voter anomalies” through its research, and each one represents “… fraud, waste or potential error”.

KING COUNTY, Wash. – Along Interstate 90 through Bellevue, Trailer Inns RV Park is almost out of place.

Unlike the RV ranges in remote campsites, this facility is a 15-minute drive from downtown Seattle.

Interventionists who have been snooping around King County neighborhoods over the past few months were quick to identify Trailer Inns as possible evidence of voter registration fraud.

“We have identified 20 voters who voted from [this] RV space rental business,” the King County Voter Research Project wrote in an eight-page report submitted to King County Elections in April. The report alleges voters violated RCW 29A.08.010, which requires voters to register at their “address of residence.”

Trailers Inns is a prime example of a Voter Research Project report, in which volunteers check voter registration records, then take to the streets, going door-to-door to investigate what they claim to be registered. suspicious sign.

The Voter Research Project says it found 444 “voter anomalies” through its research, and each one represents “… fraud, waste or potential error”.

But an investigation by KING 5 found that voters at the Trailers Inn were not anomalous. An owner representative said there are about two dozen trailer owners living at the park. Some have lived there for more than 20 years.

“We couldn’t afford a house when we sold it back in Utah, so we’ve lived in this scene for almost two years here,” Dustin Reid pointed to his 43-foot fifth wheeler.

Reid and his wife both work for the government and live in the trailer with their two children. Reid’s name was on the Voter Research Project’s list of “voter anomalies,” which he was not satisfied with.

“I don’t know how they can call us ineligible voters if they don’t actually come out. I’ve never met anyone here who said, “Do you really live here,” Reid said.

King County Elections Director Julie Wise confirmed that a trailer, as well as several other types of non-traditional homes, can be legally registered as a voter’s residence.

“I don’t see anything on that list that indicates voters are doing anything illegal or incorrect,” she said.

Wise asked her election team to analyze the Voter Research Project report.

The Voter Research Project’s report lists 417 voters who the group says have “moved out” but are still registered at the same old address. The law requires voters to register at their current place of residence.

Many voters move, Wise said, and the elections office was able to make nearly 100,000 updates to the county’s 1.4 million registrations in a two-month period.

Wise said the Voter Research Project is based on a database that is rapidly becoming obsolete.

“Ninety percent of voters have updated [their] Wise said.

She said her team was able to reduce the group’s reported abnormalities.

“I don’t see anything in the reporting that goes up to fraud,” Wise said.

KING 5 investigated the “Crude Crusade” in several western Washington counties as similar groups traveled throughout the surrounding areas. They were motivated by the belief that the 2020 presidential election had been “stolen” and rigged and that incompetence in local elections needed to be exposed.

In other counties, Voter Research Unit volunteers submitted detailed reports that included names, addresses, and alleged violations the team used to identify voter irregularities.

But the King County team includes only sparse details. They listed the voter’s name, voter ID number and one-word description of the violation, which was “moved” in all but 27 of the group’s 444 anomalies.

Unlike other counties, there is not enough information to get to specific addresses. The Inns RV Trailer Park was the only location that KING 5 Investigators were able to pinpoint.

The King County Voter Research Project Coordinator said there was no intention to withhold information. He said the report includes enough information for King County Elections to track reported irregularities, which is the goal.

“We’re working on cleaning and trying to clean voter rolls in Washington state,” said Dave Griffin, a Boeing retiree who leads a team of about 50 volunteers.

Griffin was undaunted when King County Elections discovered that his report was filled with misunderstandings and inaccuracies.

“I think the county election process has room for improvement,” he said. “I don’t know if the word ‘scam’ is relevant, but what’s involved is a lot of questions.”

Griffin was asked if he was comfortable with local candidates claiming their elections were “stolen” and pointing to his report as evidence.

“The solution is to have clean voter registration rolls, and the solution is to have clean elections,” Griffin said, although his report does not provide evidence that voter registration rolls are incorrect.

KING 5 investigators asked Griffin for an example of a “smoke gun” example of voter fraud, and he pointed to his reporting section, saying: “We spoke to a number of people in the market. HB-1 real estate agents and/or their spouses who are registered to vote unknowingly” Through Washington’s motor voter program, it makes it easy to vote when applying for a driver’s license state car.

“Somehow our system allowed them to be registered to allow them to vote,” Griffin said.

Griffin has been asked to provide specific names and addresses so that KING 5 can investigate specific cases.

Griffin said, “I’m not saying ‘no’.” I said let me check because I didn’t want to reveal other people’s personal information that would put them in danger.”

After multiple texts, KING 5 has not received a response from Griffin since that interview.
