Jerauld county auditor Cindy Peterson said that the election list closed on August 1, and while Steichen died from cancer in September her name was kept on the list for Tuesday's election.
Steichen beat a Republican rival by 100 votes to 64 and Peterson said she believed that voters knew the woman was dead but wanted to make their political point.

If questions arent being asked about Diebold machines dead people are being elected.
But isnt there something wrong with a system that allows dead people to be elected ?
It is more likely that her rival was such a waste of space, people would rather vote in a dead person.
