It used to be if you were dead you were only eligible to vote in Chicago, and only then if you were a Democrat.

Concetta Bertoldi's book Do Dead People Watch You Shower should have a follow up: The Dead Will Help You Win an Election! (Concetta's book was utterly charming even to a hoary crabby grumpy skeptic like me!)
