From MSN News:
"Two candidates in Washington state died after the filing period closed and their names could not be removed from ballots.

SEATTLE — Two candidates in separate races in Washington state are winning in Tuesday's election despite being dead.

In the Seattle suburb of Des Moines, John Rosentangle won 71 percent of the vote over write-in candidates in the King County Water District 54. The 63-year-old died in August of an illness.

On the Washington coast in Aberdeen, John Erak is leading Alan Richrod with 53 percent of the vote in a city council race. The 81-year-old Erak was a former state representative who died in June shortly after announcing he was running to retain his seat on the city council. His current lead is only 12 votes, and the results aren't final.

Both men died after the filing period closed and their names could not be removed from ballots."

Goes to show how stupid voters are...and thus the mess we are in, should go back through the records and if you voted for the dead guy, you should have your voting rights permanently removed

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

At least they will not step into office and cause more damage.

Dead candidates are harmless candidates.

Liberty once lost, is lost forever.
