    never used the Social Security website, but I do use Ancestry.com all the time for my family research, and the records are readily available there.

    •  So it is public information and should be used (0+ / 0-)

      I assume that the various levels of government can work out excellent approaches to sharing public information, to make this as easy as possible to do tasks like keeping the voter rolls up-to-date.

      I don't know when states started to ask for driver's license numbers or the last four digits of the SSN, but, over time, the states will have virtually all voters listing that information.

      That will provide a high level of accuracy in linking the Social Security reports of deaths to the state voter rolls.

      To me, it just makes sense to improve the updating of the voter rolls before you start putting huge demands on state agencies and voters for ID, if the goal is to ensure that the names of deceased voters are removed from the list.
