And according to a comment at the news site linked to at the start of this story, because she wasn’t alive on election day, her vote will probably be invalidated. The election commission is responsible for removing voters from the rolls who weren’t qualified to vote on election day next Tuesday and death os one reason for removing them.
This isn’t Chicago, so the dead can’t vote. That’s the saddest part of this.
I posted this up on dKos, and someone in the comments apparently called the South Carolina Board of Elections, who said it would count.
Obviously it’s different state to state, but in most states you can’t be purged from the voter registry within a certain time period before the election (most places it’s 2-3 weeks).
The important thing for her was the act of voting, she of course would never know that it might not count.
That assumes there’s nothing left of her now to know.
This time of year I’m much less inclined to make that assumption.
cool. it was a shame to read that it might not count.
here’s another one.. or rather a charming blog
(unless you already knew of them and I missed it?)
