Deceased man receiving voter registration card ever year in mail

Woman says deceased husband still receives voter registration card every year

Sherry Brown's husband passed away ten years ago, but she says every two years he receives a voter registration card in the mail.

DETROIT – Sherry Brown's husband passed away ten years ago, but she says every two years he receives a voter registration card in the mail.

Robert Ramone Brown passed away in February 2003 at the age of 49 and his wife wonders why her husband is still receiving a voter's card.

Almost a decade ago, the City of Detroit was rocked by a scandal when former Jackie Currie, the Detroit City Clerk at the time, was accused of accepting ballots from people who'd been long-since deceased.

In 2005, Janice Winfrey won the seat and vowed one of her jobs would be to clean up the voter rolls, but somehow Brown is still receiving one.
