Williams also stated that the voting systems are not perfect and there are some gaps. These dead men and women voting from one county to another. Investigators has also found that after the voter's death, their names were still on the voting list and mail ballots were sent to their houses and somebody else casted the vote who wasn't supposed to. People were stealing dead voters name and voting for them.

Origin and Prevalence

History: On September 22, 2016, Brian Maass and Mark Ackerman reported that dead voters casting ballots in Colorado. Dozens Found On Voting Rolls Long After Deaths. The cases of dead men and women casting ballots ranged from El Paso County in southern Colorado to Denver and Jefferson County

Issues and analysis: There are more evidence to support Colorado dead voters claim is true. Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams said, "We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred" after reviewing the CBS4 findings. He also said, "It shows there is the potential for fraud." Broerman, who is a El Paso County Clerk and Recorder said that he was shocked at what happened and also said, "Our democracy depends on it. People have spilled their blood for the values and underpinnings and beliefs of this country." There were several dead victims founds whose votes were cast after months and years of their deaths. One of the most glaring cases was that of Sara Sosa in Colorado Springs. She died on Oct. 14, 2009. However, CBS4 uncovered voting records that showed ballots cast for Sosa in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Her husband, Miguel, died on Sept. 26, 2008. But CBS4 unearthed records showing that a vote was cast in his name the next year, 2009. Jim Cluck, whose mom died on Feb. 1, 2009 stated, "I think mom would be really disheartened to know somebody used her name to do something that she didn't have any input into. If mom passes away and nine months later someone votes for her, that's not right."
