Millions of voter registrations contain significant errors

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- A report from the Pew Center shows 24 million voter registrations here in the US contain significant errors.

About 1.8 million dead people are still on the rolls, and some people are able to vote in multiple states. On top of that, about 12 million registrations have incorrect addresses on them.

Researchers say the problem is more likely outdated state systems that haven't kept up with changing lifestyles rather than fraud.

Washington is one of eight states that say they're working along with the Pew Center this year on a centralized data system. This new system could help identify people whose registrations may be out of date.

Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed says he thinks it will bring more trust and confidence to the election system.
