More than 20,000 deceased voters’ names were discovered from the voting rolls. The Pennsylvania Department of State has agreed to take steps to remove dead voters from in a settlement reached with an election-integrity group.

The state is now under pressure by organization “Electronic Registration Information Center” to equate its existing voter list to the group’s database, resulting in the removal of thousands of dead voters.

The Pennsylvania Department of State has agreed to take the requisite measures to delete these deceased citizens from the voter rolls.

The state agreed to compare its voter-registration database with the nonprofit Electronic Registration Information Center, which includes data from the Social Security Death Index, and to direct all county election commissioners to remove the names of dead voters.

After finding more than 21,000 dead registered voters on the rolls less than a month before the November election, PILF filed a lawsuit.

Hundreds of these deceased voters appeared with post-death voting credits in 2016 and 2018, according to the complaint.

The agreement “includes no finding of inadequacy on the part of Pennsylvania and its counties,” according to the State Department.
The state said it committed to a one-time investigation and is disputing whether it has 21,000 deceased voters on its rolls.

In a statement, the Department of State said, “The Department of State is pleased that this agreement will provide Pennsylvania’s county boards of election with another useful tool to preserve the most reliable and up-to-date voter rolls possible.”

This latest move is another step in the right direction as many conservative organizations race to address the mess created by all the mail-in ballots in the 2020 election.

“This marks an important victory for the integrity of elections in Pennsylvania,” said J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which sued the state in October. “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.”

PILF sued after discovering more than 21,000 dead registered voters were still on the rolls less than a month ahead of the November election.

According to PILF, 9,212 of the voters had been dead for more than five years, while 1,990 were dead for more than a decade.

The lawsuit argued that hundreds of these dead voters showed up with post-death voting credits in 2016 and 2018.

The Department of State said the agreement “includes no finding of inadequacy on the part of Pennsylvania and its counties.” The state said it agreed to a one-time analysis and is disputing whether there are 21,000 dead voters on its rolls.

“The Department of State is pleased that this agreement will offer Pennsylvania’s county boards of election another valuable tool to maintain the most accurate and up-to-date voter rolls possible,” the agency said in a statement.

President Biden defeated former President Trump in Pennsylvania by 80,555 votes, or roughly 1%.

Former President Donald Trump blamed his election loss on widespread voter fraud, launching several lawsuits contesting the state’s results. Those lawsuits, though, were tossed out by the courts.
