More Than 349,000 Dead Registrants Remain on Voter Rolls, Report Finds

Nearly 350,000 dead registrants remain on voter rolls across 41 states, according to an audit (pdf) conducted by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF). The number is a major improvement over the last time an assessment of similar scope was performed in 2012, when a Pew Research report turned up 2 million deceased voters on the rolls. In the 2016 and 2018 elections, states credited 14,608 registrants for voting after death, the PILF report found.
