SC DMV Director: 900 Dead People Have Voted In The State

Kevin Shwedo, director of the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, told state legislators on Wednesday that 900 people who were documented as having cast their votes are actually dead.

In conjunction with the state’s new voter identification law — which is currently being investigated by the United States Justice Department — Shwedo poured through the records of over 230,000 residents without a driver’s license or comparable ID.

Although Schwedo did not specify when the dubious votes were cast, his discoveries are disconcerting to a state that is about to host the first southern primary: the Election Commission records included 30,000 people who are dead and over 91,000 people who now reside in different states.
