Officials in the state of Pennsylvania reached a tentative agreement with outside groups and organizations Friday to remove “dead people” from voting lists before the 2022 Midterm Elections.
“As of October 7, 2020, at least 9,212 registrants have been dead for at least five years, at least 1,990 registrants have been dead for at least ten years, and at least 197 registrants have been dead for at least twenty years … Pennsylvania still left the names of more than 21,000 dead individuals on the voter rolls less than a month before one of the most consequential general elections for federal officeholders in many years,” the press release read
“This marks an important victory for the integrity of elections in Pennsylvania,” said President and General Counsel for the Public Interest Legal Foundation J. Christian Adams. “The Commonwealth’s failure to remove deceased registrants created a vast opportunity for voter fraud and abuse. It is important to not have dead voters active on the rolls for 5, 10, or even 20 years. This settlement fixes that.”
