Disenfranchised Voters Take Heart

I’ve been going over the information coming out of Washington State concerning their hotly contested Governor’s race. After having recounted the ballots for yet a third time, the first two showed the Republican to be the winner, while the third hand count provided a win for the Democrat. It does appear that many of the regular voters had been disenfranchised from the voting process. According to some of the voting irregularities uncovered so far in King County alone; there were only 45 votes cast by persons known to be dead and buried included in the total county wide voting tabulation that far exceeded the available registered voters. I think it terrible that the rest of the known dead and buried voters were kept from casting their important vote. The futility of the Republican contestant should be obvious; anyone with a sense of history knows that the “formally living” always vote a straight Democratic ticket.
