Pa Cleans Up Voter Rolls

10.15.13 | Bob Price

Pennsylvania has joined a multi-state alliance that aims to clean up voter rolls by identifying people registered in more than one state and dead people who remain on registration lists. About half of all states belong to the coalition, which cross-checks voters' names. States compile registration lists at the end of each year to check for duplicates. The program has grown rapidly since beginning in 2005. This year, officials identified more than 5 million questionable registrations in 22 states and discovered some people who voted in multiple states.
