Join Operation Ghost Catcher

By Randy Schiffer | June 11, 2024

If a stranger were to tell you the official Michigan voter registration database is polluted with complete garbage, a reasonable person would question the statement. What if the investigator said that, as of May 2024, more than 320,000 ghost voter registrations populated the official Michigan voter registration database, and his team had derived this astronomical figure after applying state-of-the-art and sophisticated election data analysis to multiple government and official databases? What if this person offered the lists of these ghost voter registrations, fraudulent information, and irregularities to you free of charge, and he invited you to verify the findings and work with your local clerk to fix the problem?

Welcome to the world of Michigan Fair Election's Soles to Rolls program and the work performed by Election Eagle LLC (, available for free at Check My Vote (

Ghost voters are shadows who linger on the voter rolls after their original registrants have moved on. Often the original registrants relocated out of state, died, or were automatically re-registered with a duplicate identification number, thanks to Michigan's new automatic voter registration law or the President or Governor's Executive Order commanding untold agencies to register all their constituents.

These shadows of perhaps-once-eligible voters do not belong on the voter rolls, and they pose a serious risk to fair elections. You see, bloated voter rolls act like bait on a fishhook. They dangle tasty potential ballots before hungry fraudsters and lure them to vote on the ghost registrant’s behalf, often by mail.

The data sources that CMV analyses consist of official election data acquired from the State of Michigan through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) transfers, a database of known US Postal Service / UPS Office Addresses, the National Change of Address (NCOA) database of people who have moved in or out of state in the past four years, data from volunteers who verify the regitrations of deceased, moved, or unknown registrants), and the MELISSA National Database for apartments. 

Needless to say, the analysis is credible. Make no mistake: Real votes can be cast and counted that are associated with these suspected fake ghost voter registrations in the upcoming 2024 election in Michigan. If you haven’t seen yet, it’s worth watching. This will be the most important and significant US election of our lifetimes, if not of our entire country’s history.

What actions can we take to clean the voter registration rolls in Michigan?

Go to Check My Vote (, create an account, print out the suspected ghost voter registrations for your local jurisdiction, and show them to your local clerk. The clerks are responsible for conducting the elections and for keeping the voter rolls accurate in their jurisdictions. Tell the clerk you are concerned with fake, ghost voter registrations, show your clerk the data, and ask for the ghost voter registrations to be removed from the voter rolls in full compliance with the Michigan Election Law according to MCL 168.509dd and / or MCL 168.521.

If you have ever been on the fence about becoming politically active, now is the time to go all in to save our country from a dark outcome. Make noise, get active, and make your voice heard. We have to be the ones to step up and save our country. Don’t wait until tomorrow because tomorrow may be too late. Attend election integrity group meetings, attend local political meetings, urgently engage with local election officials and law enforcement.

Most importantly: Take action. Actions will save our country, not words.
