Ohio's top elections official says it appears that thousands of voters considered "active" are anything but.
Secretary of State Jon Husted says a report has found nearly 18,500 dead people on the state's voter rolls. Records of registered voters were cross-checked with a list of deceased Ohioans maintained by the state Health Department.
The secretary is asking county elections boards to purge those who are deceased from the statewide voter database.
During the 2008 election, who carried the Ohio dead voter demographic. McCain or Obama?
