Secretary of State: Over 33,000 Dead Voters Removed from Rolls


Secretary of State Michael Adams announced Wednesday that 33,696 deceased voters have been removed this year as of December 14th.

“There is no legitimate interest in dead people being registered to vote,” Adams said. “Our administration has made strides in cleaning up the voter rolls, and Kentuckians should have confidence in our election system.”

In the same period, Kentucky also removed 4,252 voters convicted of felonies, 3,435 voters who moved out of state, 586 voters who requested to de-register, and 242 voters who have been judged as mentally incompetent.
