Dear Matthew Alice: What would happen if somebody filed an absentee ballot but then died before election day? Would their vote count? — E.B., Serra Mesa

If you’re lively enough to actually get the ballot to the registrar’s office, that’s all that matters. The fact that you don’t stick around to suffer the outcome of the election is irrelevant. Unfortunately, I don’t think the state election code says anything about voters who are dead between the ears when they vote or are driven to lunacy by TV campaign ads.
