It's hard to die without a death certificate being issued. Seems to me that Vital Statistics could cc Elections. Might not be perfect, but it would catch most, which is better than what goes on today. Probably wouldn't even require legislation.One issue is that people don't have GUIDs. So matching up a death certificate with a voter registration (or anything else) is tricky and not 100% reliable.People get incorrectly logged as dead rather less often, I think, than they continue to get benefits after actually being dead - but it does happen, and there are horror stories about the consequences. (When your Social Security check is cut off, your bank account is frozen pending contact with your executor, your landlord wants his rent, and you really seriously need to go grocery shopping...)
