FALL RIVER (CBS) - An 84-year-old woman went to vote in Fall River on Super Tuesday and was told she was dead.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Carl Stevens reports
Maureen McCloskey has been voting for years without any problems.
She didn’t expect anything unusual Tuesday, until she learned she wasn’t on the list of registered voters.
“The warden, she looks at me and she says ‘Oh, you died,” McCloskey told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Wednesday.
“They put me on the ‘deceased’ list.”
Surprised, McCloskey said, “I’m still alive and kicking.”
It turned out there was some kind of mix-up with the new city census.
They figured it out, McCloskey voted and she said she plans on continuing to vote for many years to come.
