Now THIS Is What I Call a Grave Matter

Filed under: Scams,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 8:00 am

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer (HT RAB):

Cuyahoga County has 1.05 million registered voters, which tops the number of adults in the county by 200,000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.


UPDATE, 6:20 PMThis previous post (“Remind Me Again: What’s Wrong with Requiring ID to Vote?”) noted that a Cleveland TV station found numerous examples of votes cast (and allowed) in the names of dead people in Cuyahoga County in last May’s primary.



  1. I won’t attribute all 200,000 to vote fraud, but even if it is 10% of that number then it is too many. I’m sure many are people who aren’t removed when they move or pass away. There actually is an easy fix. Match voter registration to SSN. Social security gets notified when anyone passes away. Anytime someone registers and it turns out they are previously registered elsewhere they are removed from the old voter rolls.

  2. #1, Companies with databases this screwed up would go out of business.

    Your comment reminded to go back and find the post on the actual proof of vote fraud a Cleveland TV station found in Cuyahoga County. They found 27 dead people who voted; I don’t think it was in any way a comrehensive attempt to find all of the fraud
