PIERRE, S.D. - A woman who died two months ago won a county commissioner's race in Jerauld County on Tuesday.

Democrat Marie Steichen, of Woonsocket, got 100 votes, defeating incumbent Republican Merlin Feistner, of Woonsocket, who had 64 votes.

Jerauld County Auditor Cindy Peterson said she believes the county board will have to meet to appoint a replacement for Steichen. Peterson said she'll check with the state's attorney to be sure that's the process.

I believe people vote for dead guys just for fun, and to show how truly disgusted they are.

TU you trying to tell me that my vote for Jim Leyland for Governor of Michigan was wrong, and that I should have voted for Rosa Parks?

most politicians do about as much as a dead guy.

I'd vote for all dead politicians if I had the choice.
