Question of the day 11-3-08
We do not have early voting in NY (other then absentee ballots), so I am posing this question, it is two fold:
If a Person Votes Early and Dies before Election Day does that Vote Count? Should that Vote Count?

Sure. As long as they were alive when they voted unlike in Louisiana and Ohio. Their right to vote as a citizen should be honored. Otherwise McCain would lose the nursing home vote.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I don't see why not, as they were alive at the time the vote was cast and it was a legal ballot. They just don't have to live with the results of the election.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

They probably cared a great deal about their vote if they spent some of their precious time during their final few days of life voting, and it would be really painful to those they left behind if their votes--one of the final things they did--didn't count. Counting them, on the other hand, shouldn't be a big deal, since it probably wouldn't change the final result anyway (since those voting right before they die are not confined to any particular party and will probably split along the same lines as the rest of the population). So I think their votes should count.

Varies by state.
In my view a marked ballot isn't a vote until election day.

I think it should count, agree with Ducky -- they were alive at the time the vote was cast and it was within the time frame allowed for voting.Arm the sheep!

I think it should count. Like others have said, when the person voted they were alive.

Why not? A lot of the Democrat votes are from dead people anyway. Obama wants the live ones to vote early and vote often.The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.
That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.” – Jeff Cooper'
