Pennsylvania has joined a multi-state consortium in an effort to track duplicate voters outside state borders.
The Pennsylvania Department of State announced Tuesday that the state is the 24th to have joined the program, which is based in Kentucky and called the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program.
Department of State spokesman Ron Ruman says this will be a county-to-county operation and that similar checks already happen between counties within the state. The program centralizes voter data from the 24 states and allows for duplication checks between all of the states' counties.
When duplicates are found, county officials will attempt to contact the twice-registered voters to verify whether they've moved. Ruman says it will be up to the counties to decide whether to cancel the registration of voters who cannot be reached.
Pennsylvania will begin providing voter data in 2014.
