The story, out of Florida, is almost unbelievable but JW has all the documentation to prove it. First here is a little background; in 2010 JW launched the Election Integrity Project precisely to pressure states and localities around the nation to clean up voter registration rolls pursuant to Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

The goal is simple, to ensure the integrity and legitimacy of the electoral process by removing from the eligible voter lists the names of people who have died or moved. Enacted in 1993, NVRA actually requires this so states and counties shouldn’t need a reminder from an independent, nonpartisan educational foundation like JW.

Never the less, JW obtained publicly available data that indicates voter rolls around the country—including key swing states—contain the names of individuals who are ineligible to vote. They include Mississippi, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Florida, Alabama, California, and Colorado.
