Dead people voting is a type of election fraud that occurs when a deceased person remains on the voter registration rolls, and a person fraudulently casts a ballot in their name.


  • In 2006, the Tennessee State Senate voted to nullify the election of Ophelia Ford after an investigation revealed that three poll workers had faked votes in her behalf, including at least two votes cast in the name of dead people.
