FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams announced Wednesday that, as of Dec. 14, 33,696 dead voters have been removed from voter rolls in 2020.

"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.
