Welp, I tried one. Mary Pope, the 10th entry in that data-dump/list posted by an anonymous person. Sure enough the Michigan Obits page showed she died in the early 80s, and that her name is associated with a ballot in 2020.
I'd like a link if you can find one. I'm not particularly worried about it, as there are already enough questions about this that the list could be rendered useless if they're answered. Still, if you can show me this is a PRATT, I'd appreciate it...Already debunked.
It's just another baseless whine by Trumpites....here. And here.I'd like a link if you can find one.

OK. Before I reply with a "But...", I readily concede that accusations of dead people voting have largely been debunked. The debunking has happened so often that I'm instantly skeptical of any new claims of it happening, and I've already said there are things about the links in this thread which make me skeptical of this claim.
The dead voter conspiracy theory peddled by Trump voters, debunkedA barrage of voter fraud conspiracy theories reveal Trump supporters’ fundamental misunderstanding of the system
Late last week, Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier declared on social media that he had unearthed definitive proof of widespread voter fraud in Detroit. He pointed to an absentee ballot cast by “118-year-old William Bradley”, a man who had supposedly died in 1984.
“They’re trying to steal the election,” Fournier warned in a since-deleted Facebook post, though the election had already been called for Joe Biden by every major news network days before.
But the deceased Bradley hadn’t voted. Within days, Bradley’s son, also named William Bradley, but with a different middle name, told PolitiFact that he had cast the ballot. That was confirmed by Michigan election officials, who said a clerk had entered the wrong Bradley as having voted. Though the living Bradley had also received an absentee ballot for his father, he said he threw it away, “because I didn’t want to get it confused with mine”.
The false claim that the deceased Bradley had voted in the 3 November election is one of a barrage of voter fraud conspiracy theories fired off by Trump supporters across the country during recent weeks, and all have been debunked while failing to prove that widespread irregularities exist.
Instead, the theories often reveal Trump supporters’ fundamental misunderstandings of the election system while creating a game of conspiracy theory whack-a-mole for election officials.
