No, thousands of dead people are not registered to vote in North Carolina

A chain email has begun circulating in North Carolina that claims widespread irregularities in the state’s voter rolls.

The email caught our attention with its subject line, "PROOF !! North Carolina has the world's oldest voters !"

It says there are thousands of registered voters in North Carolina who are 110 or more years old, including one person who is a whopping 219 years old.

Though tongue-in-cheek, the implication is clear – that many dead people are still actively registered, perhaps allowing others to commit voter fraud by casting ballots in their names.

"Perhaps it is something in the (North) Carolina water," the email begins. "I doubt there is another state in the Union who could claim, as NC does, to have 5,376 voters 110 years old, or older. One current voter was born in 1798, making him a rather hefty 219 years old, thereby nearly doubling the age of the oldest person on earth."

2. This garbage is just part of effort by Reps to reinstate Voter ID that courts rejected recently

NC actually has very good election system (set up when Dems were Governors) with paper ballots allowing accurate recounts, bipartisan teams of poll workers and effective system of removing deceased persons from registration rolls. The recounts over Dem Roy Cooper's victory revealed only a few irregularities that had been promptly caught and corrected before the recounts.

In the entire state over the past several years, all voter integrity reviews and recounts have turned up extremely few cases of ineligible persons on voter rolls or fraudulent voting.
