How to Decrease Voter Fraud

Two simple ways to decrease voter fraud:

  1. When someone dies, the county they die in issues a Death Certificate.  The county sends a copy to the State Bureau of Vital Statistics. The county should also send the name of the deceased to the County Elections Board; if the deceased was a registered voter, the name could then be removed from the voter rolls. 
  2. The county also supervises Jury Selection.  When a potential juror claims non-residence or non-citizen status as an excuse to perform jury duty, the court should forward that information to the County Elections Board.  If that person is a registered voter, the name could then be removed from the voter rolls. 

Both of these actions take place on the local County level. In low population areas, this is easy, a weekly list to check off.  In cities, it would be a daily task for maybe three people - one at the health department, one at the courthouse, one at the elections board, and not so unmanageable that it couldn't be incorporated into an already existing public employee's schedule.
