|Like the people of Georgia, concerned citizens in Chester County reviewed voter rolls and compared them with the National Change of Address database, which maintains permanent change of address records as filed with the U.S. Postal Service.
What they found was shocking! Over 3,000 people remain registered in the county despite living elsewhere. In 2023, volunteers reviewed the voting records of some that were recorded as having moved. They found that some had actually voted in the 2022 General Election. Volunteers went to a select number of those registered addresses and asked if the voters lived there. Many neighbors and current residents shared that the persons in question had moved long ago. In the limited canvassing that they did, volunteers found 144 people illegally voted in that election because they were not citizens of Chester County.
All data and evidence was provided to Chester County in August, 2023. The citizens received a response from the Director of Voter Services dated September 8, 2023 and a response dated November 2, 2023 from the Chester County Solicitor, Colleen Frens. They can be seen below. Ultimately, the county appreciates all the work that went into the citizen investigation, but will continue the same processes it has in place with no further queries.
