How Michigan removes voters from the rolls: double-check everything and call on community groups to help

Michigan is among the states that participate in the Electronic Registration Information Center, or ERIC, a program that cross references voter registration and Social Security death data across state lines to help local officials identify and address duplicate registrations. Over the past four years, the state has canceled the registrations of more than 400,000 voters who died and more than 170,000 whose residency changed.
