Ohio's secretary of state is taking another step toward erasing dead voters off the state's voting rolls.

Secretary of State Jon Husted says the goal is to prevent fraud.
He says a new partnership will give the state access to out-of-state death records and allow election officials to share the information with the election boards in all 88 counties.
Ohio will get records that may include information about Ohio residents who die away in other states.
The state up until now has only had access to records of those who have died in Ohio.
