PITTSBURGH -- They went to the polls and their votes were counted even though they’d been dead for years.

Target 11 investigator Rick Earle pored through mounds of data and discovered that thousands of dead voters are still on the Allegheny county election rolls.

Well, someone could walk into a precinct and cast a ballot in that person's name and we discovered that it has already happened...
