Local NY election official warns of people requesting mail-in ballots - using dead voters' names

Posted: Sep 12th, 2020 - 7:30 am

A local election official in New York state is warning that some people are trying to request mail-in ballots for the November election using the personal information of deceased people.

"Just this morning we revealed an absentee ballot application that was dated September 4th from a voter who died in June. Those things ought to be ferreted out," said Nick LaLota, Suffolk County elections commissioner, during a mail-in voting discussion on Thursday hosted by House Administration Committee ranking member Rep. Rodney Davis. "I hope that we're all in agreement that it is part of this county and other county boards of elections duties, to identify those and to ensure that ballots don't go out, in this case for a dead person."

LaLota called on local district attorneys in New York and other states to find and prosecute people who are trying to request ballots under the names of dead people.
