The goal of the bill is to have states check the Social Security Administration’s death records and purge the deceased from voter rolls.
“The ease with which someone is able to steal the ballot of a deceased person and cast an illegitimate vote should disturb, alarm, and outrage every American citizen, no matter what side of the aisle they sit on,” Babin said, according to a news release from his office.
“To protect our democratic process and Americans’ faith in our elections, we must ensure that deceased individuals are not allowed to remain on state voter rolls.”
There is currently no text of the bill available.
Babin, who is in a solidly Republican district, created the bill in response to President Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.
Numerous affidavits testifying to various types of election fraud have been filed in courts in several swing states. These affidavits constitute evidence of fraud, but those allegations have yet to be proven by those courts.
The legal action remains ongoing.
