    Dear (mod edit):

    You recently delivered two (2) undated Freedom of Information Act requests to the Our_Town Police Department. I have been asked to respond on behalf of the Department.

    1. You request “a printout of names and addresses of all felons residing in Our_Town.

    I also wrote to the State Dept. of Health and requested a list of persons deceased in my county since 2000, for the purpose of validating the voter rolls.

    They sent back a schedule of fees for vital records, which has no roster of deaths. They charge $12 each for death certificates. But to get a death certificate or a statement of death, I would have to know the deceased person's name, which is the whole point of getting a list of the deceased.

    No offer of help. No cooperation. "Ignore them and they'll go away."

    So this means, "the deceased are not allowed to vote," is null and void.

    How much more simple it would have been to say, "The State Dept. of Health confers with the Our_Town Registrar and validates the voter rolls against the list of the deceased, to bring the voter rolls into compliance with state law."

    Social Security Death Index

    The Social Security Administration maintains an index of people which have been reported dead. The LDS church maintains a web site which allows search of this index by name. http://www.familysearch.org/eng/sear...lear_form=true
    The SSA sells the entire database on DVD for $7,245 and also offers online inquires at various subscription prices. http://www.ntis.gov/products/ssa-dmf.aspx There may be some subscription geanealogical web sites which offer search by only geographical area and by date but the ones I know of require at least a name. Some newspaper web sites also offer online searches of obituary notices.
