Dead people voting

Keeping Stock has a post on how there is likely to be many votes cast in the election on behalf of dead people.

This is sadly no exagerration. A couple of years ago I was at an international political conference where various countries discussed their elections, and hat worked and what didn’t.  One of the Opposition MPs from Tanzania (I think) got up and told us how their major accomplishment was that they reduced from one million to just 300,000 the number of dead people voted!!

This made us realise how relatively trivial our problems were, such as people out until later so harder to contact them!
