listed on the death reggestry but still remaining on the voter rolls in santa clara county. four years ago contra costra county had nearly 120 names that matched the death index on the rolls. and we actually found eight of those people who actually voted or more likely someone voted in their name after the record showed they died. again, this is a very, very small perspentage of eligible voters. they say it would not tip a national or state-wide election but could have an effect on a small town race somewhere and it points to the need to keep up with voter rolls and to modernize systems throughout this state. they told us they looked through the names we sent them and follow up next year. >> thank you very much. if you have a tip for steven or the investigative unit, give
us a call or you can always send an email to the email@example.com. all that rain is making a difference. we got word that near lly a quarter of california is out of the drought. the report from the u.s. drought monitor says these are the best conditions since 2013. october's rainfall was triple the amount we normally get here in northern california. >> we're getting a break from the rain for at least a couple of weeks though, right? >> at least from any big storm system. i did think with the drought changi changing, we wanted to give you a quick look at how we're doing on a map view and it's the northern extreme section that's out of the drought and we made headway with el nino last fall and winter and north bay peninsula, san francisco in abnormally dry.
