New Report Shows That 24 Million Voter Registrations Have Significant Errors
A new study conducted by the Pew Center shows that a whopping 24 million voter registrations contain significant mistakes.
Eric Shawn reports on the study, which shows that 1 in every 8 voter registrations are invalid or inaccurate. The errors include:
12 million registrations have the wrong address.
2.75 million people are registered in multiple states.
2.8 million people listed as registered voters are dead.
The researchers say that there is no evidence that ballots have been cast in the names of the dead, though that has been claimed in the past.
Eight states – Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware – are teaming up with the study's sponsor on a database to collectively share information. More states are also starting online registration that lets voters update their own information.
