Pennsylvania to remove dead voters from voter rolls after lawsuit settlement

After a lawsuit from the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) fire filed in November 2020, Pennsylvania has agreed to remove those who are now dead from the voter rolls in a settlement deal.

Per Breitbart “the settlement met with Pennsylvania’s Acting Secretary Veronica Degraffenreid that requires state election officials to compare death data sets from the Electronic Registration Information Center to the full voter registration database before the 2021 election.”

PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement “this marks an important victory for the integrity of elections in Pennsylvania.”

“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 five, 10, or even 20 years. This settlement fixes that,” he added.

The PILF claimed in their lawsuit that about 92 percent of the 21,000 dead people on Pennsylvania’s voter rolls died sometime before October 2019.
