Department of State Takes Step to Identify Potential Duplicate Voter Registrations
In an effort to protect the integrity of every vote, Pennsylvania has recently joined a multi-state consortium to identify voters who may be registered to vote in more than one state.
Several years ago, a handful of Midwestern states created the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program to cross-check voter registration databases. There are 25 states now participating in the program.
The Commonwealth will provide data for the program in January 2014 and should have a list of potential duplicate registrations early next year. Prior to the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program, there was no similar method to identify potential duplicate registrations among states.
