    Vote! It was the last thing she did.

    OCILLA, Ga. (AP) - Every last vote counts - even if it's the
    voter's last vote.
    A city council race in south Georgia was thrown into a runoff by
    the absentee ballot of a woman who died on election day - and not
    the night before, as officials first believed.
    Election officials initially said Tyrone Smith defeated Allan
    Smith 65-64 in Tuesday's election. But one of the absentee ballots
    was rejected because poll workers thought the voter had died Monday
    night. They later learned that she died after the polls opened.
    "We had marked the ballot 'rejected, deceased,"' elections
    superintendent Frances Bradford said Wednesday. "The registrar,
    Mary Denney, had said something about how it would have been a tie
    when we were counting, and then after we went home I started
    thinking, 'How does the code read?"'
    Bradford said City Attorney Harry Mixon looked up the Georgia
    Election Code after going home. The law specifies that the ballot
    is invalid if the absentee voter dies before the polls open.
    The ballot was opened Wednesday morning at City Hall, and
    officials called for the Nov. 25 runoff.
    "I've never heard of anything like it, and they hadn't in
    Atlanta either," said Jo Wingate, executive director of the
    Secretary of State's office in south Georgia. "It was an odd
    thing."

    Speaking of yesterday's election it appears the city of Central Falls R.I. have replaced incumbent Lee Matthews with Charles Moreau by 18 votes. Matthews is a "dog of an impure breed" who has constantly stepped on the FD and has threatened to fire them all and have privates do EMS and mutual aid do fire runs, because he can't understand we he should pay people to do this job. Actually it is sour grapes since he was spurned about 15 yrs. ago in his attempt to get on the CFFD. Congrats to the CFFD Local 1485!!!!
