State leaders have said there have been around 50 voter fraud convictions in Texas in the past decade.Democrats say efforts to fight a small problem will end up discriminating against minority voters and making it harder for some Texans to make it to the polls. But just months before the general election, the names of around 77,000 Texans landed on a statewide list that suggests they may be dead and should be removed from voter rolls.Voters statewide, including several dozen in Tarrant County, are letting election officials know they are alive and well and plan to vote Nov. "There was a concern that the death records weren't being cross-checked by anyone against the voter registration rolls," said state Rep.
"The objective is worthy: to make sure that when anyone passes away, their names are removed from voter rolls." Those plans to purge voting rolls before the election may be up in the air, however, since a state district judge last week temporarily blocked Texas' secretary of state from ordering counties to remove names of deceased Texans from their lists.
