Regarding the Nov. 21 Under the Dome item “Early voters who die before Election Day are not counted”: I have found that my wife’s vote was disallowed. She was unable to vote in person on Nov. 8 due to her advanced ALS. Therefore she submitted an absentee ballot in October.
This election was very important to her and she wanted to participate, as she had all her life. Unfortunately, she died Oct. 21, thus, I guess, voiding her vote according to state election law.
How unfortunate her voice was silenced twice, in death and in voting participation.
I hear from the Republicans that “there are numerous cases of felons and dead people voting” thus proving voter fraud. Well, my wife is probably chuckling over that generalization. I suspect she would have rather been standing in line and voting on Election Day.
Never miss a local story.
