The story does not say which party received her votes in 2010, but we can guess.
A Michigan woman died nearly six years ago and no one noticed until the bank account that was automatically paying her bills ran out. Then the story got even stranger.
Pia Farrenkopf had an agreement with her mail carrier in Pontiac not to leave mail at her home, because she frequently traveled for business and took care of her bills online, according to the Detroit Free Press.
But now it appears that Oakland County voting records show Farrenkopf voted in the November 2010 gubernatorial election.
The dead woman has not been positively identified by the medical examiner’s office, and the city clerk said the vote could possibly have been an administrative error.
Officials are still trying to determine the cause of death of the woman who was found in her car inside the garage, but they said no foul play is suspected.

The above summary may not be entirely accurate; not all the facts are in. According to a CBS Detroit report dated March 11, 2014, the authorities are treating the death as a homicide.

The take-home lessons:
- Does Oakland County expect us to believe that the 2010 “ghost ballot” was a clerical error? Keep in mind that the US is rife with election fraud. Never assume that any election in the US truly reflects the decisions of those eligible voters who cast, or attempted to cast, their legitimate ballots in that election.
- Please check on your neighbors, friends, and relatives, especially when the person hasn’t been seen or heard from for awhile. In all fairness, Pia Farrenkopf’s relatives did make some failed attempts to contact her over the years.
- Unless you are in a witness protection program or are hiding from a stalker, don’t travel without telling at least one trustworthy person where you are going.
- Don’t spend your life as a recluse with no human contacts; it seldom ends well.
