Clay rejects dead voter’s ballot

Clay County Supervisor of Elections Chris Chambless said his office rejected a mail-in ballot submitted for a dead voter.

He added that all voters who submit mail-in ballots must sign the envelope on which the ballot is returned. The word “deceased” was written on the signature line of the envelope in question.

Chambless said a total of 350 ballots were rejected for the Aug. 23 primary. A majority: 297, were rejected because they were returned after the 7 p.m. deadline.
