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.

Episodes

Florida, 2008

A study conducted by the Florida Sun Sentinel in late October 2008 found:

  • More than 65,000 ineligible and duplicate voters on Florida's registration rolls.
  • 600 dead people on the list.
  • 32,000 multiply-registered voters.
  • More than 33,000 convicted felons who should not be eligible to vote.[1]

Tennessee, 2006

  • 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.
