We’ve all heard plenty of jokes (and true stories, for that matter) of the dead voting in US elections. … But this year, at least in Massachusetts, some dead people may actually have their votes counted thanks to the state legislature and the Secretary of State. … The new rule in question was put in place, as with everything else these days, because of the pandemic. Anyone who casts an early ballot – a process that’s already underway in the Bay State – and then passes away prior to November 3rd will still have their votes counted. (CBS Boston)
That’s a change from earlier voting rules that became necessary because of the coronavirus pandemic.
In the past, if you voted early, died and elections officials discovered you were dead before Election Day, your vote would not be counted.
