Dead man casts ballot

(KFOR/NBC News) An Oklahoma woman says when she went to her polling place to vote on Tuesday morning, a worker told her that her husband had already been by earlier in the day to vote.

The only problem is her husband recently passed away.

“I gave them my husband’s name, and I was ready to tell them he was deceased,” the woman told NBC affiliate KFOR. “The woman looked up and said he’s already voted.”

The Canadian County Election Board says that they are aware of the situation and investigating exactly what happened.
