There should be a way to do automatic purging of the rolls. If nothing else, then tie it to drivers license renewals. This way, when your license expires, so does your voter's registration. Since they can do both at the same time, it's a no brainer. Of course, the powers that be don't want for there to be less fraud, so any reasonable proposal falls on deaf ears.

In my state, if you die in your county or residence, then voter rolls are purged. If you pass in another county, there is no mechanism, hence the potential for fraud.
In my state, if you vote in another county of my state, your name is removed. If you vote in another state, there is no mechanism, hence the potential for fraud.
I am sure the county election commission would take a certified death certificate as proof of passing, and living voting in other states can request form.....
My point is there is no mechanism, so honest citizens need to take it upon themselves to check.
