Death of absentee voter prior to opening of polls--Ballot returned to person in
charge--Election not invalidated by casting of ballot.
If, prior to the casting of absentee ballots, the
person in charge of the election or absentee ballot counting board shall have sufficient cause to
believe that any voter who has marked and forwarded an absentee ballot has died prior to the opening
of the polls on the date of the election, the ballot of the voter shall be returned in the sealed return
envelope with the evidence of death attached and the envelope marked "Unopened by reason of death
of voter" to the person in charge of the election. The casting of any such ballot, however, shall not
invalidate the election.
