Description

Lax maintence and archaic systems allowed more than 47,000 duplicates and more than 1,000 dead voters to remain on the voter rolls for Chicago's 1995 mayoral election. The dead did vote, but usually inadvertently. The reporters did not find corruption-what they did find was mistakes beig made; votes were attributed to dead people because of the sloppiness of the list, which was cluttered with duplicates and names of the dead.
