A measure that would allow the votes of certain dead people to count is a major step closer to becoming law in Indiana. The Senate on Tuesday passed the measure 45-2. It now heads to the House. Under the proposal by Senate Elections Committee Chairman Sen. Greg Walker, if someone casts an absentee ballot in Indiana but then dies before Election Day, the dead voter’s ballot would be counted.
The goal of the bill is not to allow dead people to vote, the Columbus Republican said.
Instead, the measure is intended to save election workers time because they will no longer have to check absentee ballots against information about recent deaths.
