California Unknown impersonators used identities of 265 deceased voters Multiple Impersonation 0 500 In 2016, CBS2 compared millions of voting records from the California Secretary of State’s office with death records from the Social Security Administration and found hundreds of so-called dead voters - 265 in Southern California and a vast majority of them, 215, in Los Angeles County alone. State records show votes were cast in their names after they died, in some cases year after year. Across all counties, 32 of the dead voters cast ballots in eight elections apiece, accounting for 256 fraudulent ballots.
