One of the supposed pieces of evidence was a list that circulated on Twitter Thursday evening allegedly containing names, birth dates, and zip codes for registered voters in Michigan. The origin of the list and the identity of the person who first made it public are not known.
CNN examined 50 of the more than 14,000 names on the list by taking the first 25 names on the list and then 25 more picked at random. We ran the names through Michigan's Voter Information database to see if they requested or returned a ballot. We then checked the names against publicly available records to see if they were indeed dead.
My CNN colleagues looked into 50 of the names on a viral MAGA list supposedly showing 14,000 Michigan cases of ballots being cast in the name of dead people.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) November 10, 2020
- 37 are dead, no vote cast
- 5 are alive and voted
- 8 are alive and didn’t vote https://t.co/2qvoVmRI3N
It's going to take years to unravel the crazy Trump has wrought in this nation.
