Well, when I went to change my voting precinct I found that both my mother [d.2007] and father [d.2001] were still on the records. So, I guess they too count as "Registered voters that are already dead". I would assume that other states have the same issues as Kentucky.
The ones that are the real issue are when they vote. THAT is a problem but I notice that the article provides disparate information:
Bush won by 537 votes
There are 4462 Registered voters who appear to be deceased
SOME ??? voted after being dead.
So we really have three bits of information that are useless until more information is gathered. If the answer is simply the now deceased Gloria Guidry, that is 1/4462, statistically irrelevant.
The duplicate registration issue is a different matter than fraud. It is taxing on the system but a person, no matter how many times they sign papers are only registered to vote ONCE. It does appear the proper authorities are on it.
Wonder if they will be on the voter intimidation issues that the Republicans participated in in Ohio and other states in 2004. Fair and Balanced.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
