DES MOINES, Iowa- Over a thousand Iowans are registered to vote who could possibly be dead.
The Iowa Secretary of State is asking county auditors to check their lists for deceased voters.
The auditors will double check the information before removing any of the 1,234 names.
“It’s important that our voter lists are accurate and this routine check of information in the Social Security Death Index will help county auditors determine which voters are deceased and should no longer be on the voting rolls,” Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz said in a statement.
Social security is in charge of keeping a death index.
Polk, Muscatine and Linn counties had the highest number of people to check on.
