Mr. Smith, a Republican, once served on the Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections. He is now a part of Mr. Trump’s recount team.
In his complaint against the Georgia secretary of state and the Fulton County Election Board, Mr. Smith alleges that more than 15,000 voters on the rolls no longer live there and that at least 1,200 are also registered outside of Georgia.
“It’s a major issue that the rolls are dirty, because dirty rolls lead to dirty elections,” said Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president. “The rolls are filthy.”
The suspect numbers in Pennsylvania are even bigger than Georgia’s. The conservative group’s suit contends more than 800,000 names should be purged.
Pennsylvania figures show Mr. Trump’s Election Day lead of more than 1.25 million votes was overtaken by Mr. Biden’s nearly 4-to-1 advantage in mail-in ballots. Mr. Biden currently leads 49.8% to 48.1% with nearly 6.7 million total votes tallied.
Judicial Watch singled out three counties around Philadelphia — Bucks, Chester and Delaware — that, like the city, are Democratic strongholds. In those counties, state figures show between 83% and 87% of 444,000 mail-in ballots were returned.
