COMPLIANCE ENGINE RULES
"Election officials are mandated to remove deceased voters from the rolls within 7 days of notification."
How long does it take to remove a deceased voter from the voter rolls?
How do we ensure compliance?
WHEN a deceased voter is identified
THEN monitor for removal from the voter rolls.
The primary means of removing a Deceased Voter (DV) from the rolls is after the Department of State (DOS) receives information about the registered voter's death from the Department of Health, the U.S. Social Security Administration, and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
There's another way to have a Deceased Voter removed as well. If the respective county's Supervisor of Elections (SOE) receives of a copy of a death certificate issued by a governmental agency authorized to issue death certificates, they must remove the name of the DV from the voter rolls.
For the Compliance Engine example, we used the more common occurrence.
The DOS receives notification of a DV from statutorily-defined agencies.
Information is entered into the Florida Voter Registration System (FVRS).
FVRS alerts the respective county's SOE.
The SOE removes the DV from the voter rolls within 7 days of the FVRS notification.
HOW DOES THE COMPLIANCE ENGINE ENSURE DATA INTEGRITY?
ALERTS the SOE if the DV not removed within a predefined timeline
ESCALATES to DOS personnel if DV is not removed within a predefined timeline
ENFORCES Florida law by holding the SOE accountable if the DV is not removed within a predefined timeline
