An NBC Bay Area Investigation has uncovered thousands of California voters who remain on the voter rolls despite having died several years ago.
That discovery prompted several state and Bay Area election officials to re-examine their records, after our investigation brought this issue to light.
NBC Bay Area used the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File to cross reference with the California state voter rolls using name, date of birth, and similar zip codes to find matches. We found over 25,000
If you open the link you will find some of these dead people still voted. I know that when I had a couple of relatives past away that I notified the government of their passing but I have to wonder if they still managed to vote. The lack of interest in when I reported their passing left me with concerns this may happen.
