NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — This election cycle is dredging up the pain of the past for one Queens woman.

Michelle Dimino’s father, Anthony Baldomir, passed away in October 2012. Since then, she’s been receiving his absentee ballots for the primaries and general elections.

Dimino has made several calls to the board of elections, even sending her father’s death certificate on more than one occasion, but said he is still on the registration list.

“If I’m getting these, there must be in NYC alone hundreds maybe thousands of these going out to dead people. What are they doing with them? Are they shredding them, or ripping them up, or are people just mailing them in?” she said.

CBS2 reached out to the board of elections for comment but have not heard back yet.

    P. S. I have asked for and received absentee ballots in the past. Neither of these look anything like the post on the news. CBS news should be ashamed of themselves for not having checked it out before putting it on their eleven o’clock news.

  2. Sharon And Marc Brody says:

    According to New York State voting laws, one has to request a absentee ballot. They are not automatically sent out. Unless, the woman requested the ballot for her father, it would not have been sent. That’s voter fraud.

    1. The Facts says:

      They are sent out automatically unless you request otherwise after the first application.

        This applies to the permanently disabled with medical authorization.

  3. She should fill it out and send it in. In libland, being dead is no impediment to voting
