HI: Ballot of Obama's Grandmother Will Be Counted

By Theresa Vargas
Barack Obama's grandmother may not be around to see the election's results, but her vote will count, the Honolulu Advertiser reports.

Madelyn Payne Dunham's absentee mail ballot was processed by the Honolulu clerk's office on Oct. 27 and will be counted today along with more than 100,000 other absentee ballots statewide, the paper quoted the state's chief elections officer Kevin Cronin as saying.

Dunham, who was 86, passed away yesterday sometime after 3 a.m. Honolulu time.

Does that comply with legal requirements?
