After the Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election watchdog realized that in the state’s election lists there were about 20.000 names of people that are dead, and some even more than 5 years, they filed a lawsuit for election irregularities.
Pennsylvania Agrees to Remove Names of Dead Citizens From Voter Rolls in Settlement Agreement https://t.co/G0Xmio5WMY

“Pennsylvania agreed to compare its voter-registration database with the Social Security Death Index, and then direct all county election commissions to remove the names of dead registrants,” a report stated.
“This marks an important victory for the integrity of elections in Pennsylvania,” Public Interest Legal Foundation President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said in a statement in announcing the court’s decision. “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.”
The settlement stipulates that the “Department of State shall transmit to each county commission the names of the individuals registered in each respective county identified as deceased as a result of the comparison undertaken” with the “death data set received” from Electronic Registration Information Center that was then “compared to the full voter registration database … for the purpose of identifying persons who are ineligible to vote by reason of the registrant’s death.”
