A Well Informed Electorate.
Usually the dead just vote in California, not win office.
It was one spirited campaign.
A Southern California man who was running for re-election as Oceanside city treasurer successfully defeated his opponent Tuesday, despite having died over a month ago.
Gary Ernst, 61, received 6 percentage points more of the vote than his challenger, Nadine Scott, who had tirelessly worked to inform the public of Ernst’s Sept. 23 death.
Officials in Oceanside announced that Ernst would remain on the ballot because there wasn’t enough time to scrub his name.
