Secretary of State Michael Adams announced that, consistent with his campaign promise to clean up Kentucky’s voter rolls, 33,696 dead 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 asked to de-register, and 242 voters judged mentally incompetent.
