Buried in this morning’s P-I story about a state Senate proposal to move the primary election to August is the disturbing news that 108 dead people voted in last November’s election. Secretary of State Sam Reed says the number of deceased voters was higher than usual because the state just started using something called the Social Security Master Death Index, which allows elections officials to track people who died out-of-state. “What we don’t know is whether they were alive when they voted. I’m assuming most of them were. That’s what’s being investigated right now,” Reed said.
