The Secretary of State’s office has said it is “not aware of a single confirmed case showing that a ballot was actually cast on behalf of a deceased individual.”
Claims circulating online that dead people voted in Michigan were found to be false.
One such claim included a list purporting to show thousands of dead voters in Wayne County who cast ballots in the November election. The list had a number of serious flaws. It contained voters who were not Wayne County residents, as well as voters who never received an absentee ballot. It also included at least one woman who’s still alive who cast an absentee ballot.
