Pennsylvania Rabbit Hole Part VI


Pennsylvania Registration Databases
The More You Look The Less Sense It Makes!

Our next step was to simply examine the data in each data set. We pulled the “identifying features” out of the 153 data points for each voter—first name, last name, date of birth and gender—into one dimensional arrays so we could work with it more easily.

We chose these features because they are the basis for legal identification of a voter; and while an individual’s name may occasionally change, gender is less commonly changed. And, of course date, of birth should never change.

What’s in a birthday?

There are a great many January 1 birthdays. We counted them. The data from our November 7, 2016 data set shows that 34,384 of our 8.73 million voters was born on January 1.

Since January 1 occurs once every 365.25 days, we roughly estimated that one in 365.25 voters, or approximately 24,000 should have that birthday. The odds against 10,000 extra people having that particular birth-date seem high, to us.

And this seems rather important since date of birth is considered an identifying feature and a correct date of birth must be provided in order to register to vote or to obtain a Pennsylvania identification card.

Looking at these January 1 birth-dates more closely, we noticed a great many birth-dates of January 1, 1900, and January 1, 1800. In fact, 202 voters have a birth-date of January 1, 1900, and 1689 voters were born on January 1, 1800.


Voter Registration Databases are vital to the elections. This can’t happen. Having people that are not legitimate in the database is a huge problem. There is no reason that these shouldn’t have been found and removed.

Centenarians as a voting block?

The discovery of these extremely old voters led us to count the voters in this data set who were over the age of 100 on election day. The answer? 7,572. This is particularly extraordinary considering 0.0713% of Americans reach the age of 100.

Given Pennsylvania’s population of 12.78 million, there should be approximately 2,200 centenarians in the entire state.

Since it’s possible that some people who had passed away were not removed from the voter rolls, an even more interesting question is:

How many people over the age of 100 cast a ballot on November 8?

To estimate this, we looked at the February 27, 2017 data set. 6.2 million of the records in that data set show a “last voted” date of 11/08/2016.

Of these voters, how many were over 100? 2,109. This indicates that almost all Pennsylvanians over the age of 100 voted in the November 2016 elections.

So, demographically, the most active group that votes in Pennsylvania are voters over 100 Years Old! Awesome!

Finally, we noticed a voter whose “last voted” date was 11/06/2012 and whose birth date was listed as 12/04/1997. This indicates that that voter was under the age of 15 when she last voted.

Looking at the November 7 data, we counted all such voters and found 257 who were under 18 when they last voted. Looking at the February 27, 2017 data set we found 144 such voters, including two who voted in the November 8, 2016 election.

Now to be clear—we don’t believe this to be a fact. We are very concerned that this is more proof that this data has been manipulated.

The more we found, the better we were able to query the databases. And, the deeper we got, the worse things looked.
