Voting

I just heard this on the news in my town that if you cast a absentee ballot when voting for president and you die even a day before voting day then your vote no longer counts as a vote. One man wanted to vote and did absentee ballot but since he was sick he died i think yesterday or today and now they say his vote doesn't count and that goes for all Americans and even Americans overseas in the military. I say that's not good because you at least voted before you died and the vote was cast so what are they going to do go through all the ballots and take your out because you died? Let's just say you cast an absentee ballot because u weren't in your home state where you're registered to vote because your on vacation or a business trip and then the very day after you cast that vote you get hit by a bus and die was that your fault no. Also you are an american citizen so your vote should count no matter what and you already cast that vote before you died. So I say your vote should count no matter what. What do you have to say about this? Your feelings on it please should this be a law or not?

Must have been a slow news day there. How do these people find these things out. I feel if a vote was sent in- it should count.

I think this is not right but knowing the person would not be around I guess it really does not matter.
