The dead vote

By: David Donadio

This one counts, as Susan Gilmore of the Seattle Times writes:

When Jeanette Williams was living in a convalescent home, she always had a Barack Obama button affixed to her clothes. She was known there as the Obama Lady, said her daughter, Patty Kraniotis.

Before Mrs. Williams died Friday (Oct. 24) at age 94, of arterial disease, she made sure she cast her absentee ballot for Obama.

Beats Chicago, where the dead vote twice.
