Texas’ Brian Babin Introduces “You Must Be Alive to Vote Act,” Defunding Counties That Don’t Verify Voter Lists

A Texas Member of Congress is introducing legislation that requires counties to verify the accuracy of their voting rolls and ensure any deceased individuals are removed as valid voters. Americans have questioned election systems that fail to account for the deaths of registered voters in the aftermath of the 2020 election, enabling potential fraudsters to intercept and cast ballots in the name of citizens that have since died.

Babin’s legislation, the “You Must be Alive to Vote Act,” requires counties to annually cross-reference their voter lists with the Social Security Administration’s death records. Deceased individuals will be removed from the lists, eliminating the potential of fraud.

The right to vote is one of the most vital pillars of our democracy, the foundations of which are election integrity and confidence in our democratic processes,” said Babin in a statement provided on the legislation. “The ease with which someone is able to steal the ballot of a deceased person and cast an illegitimate vote should disturb, alarm, and outrage every American citizen, no matter what side of the aisle they sit on. To protect our democratic process and Americans’ faith in our elections, we must ensure that deceased individuals are not allowed to remain on state voter rolls.
