No surprise here...

It's not just Chicago where the dead vote early and often.
According to the Poughkeepsie Journal:

...A new statewide database of registered voters contains as many as 77,000 dead people on its rolls, and as many as 2,600 of them have cast votes from the grave, according to a Poughkeepsie Journal computer-assisted analysis.

The Journal's analysis of New York's 3-month-old database is the first to determine the potential for errors and fraud in voting. It matched names, dates of birth and ZIP codes in the state's database of 11.7 million voter registration records against the same information in the Social Security Administration's "Death Master File." That database has 77 million records of deaths dating back to 1937.
...
- Democrats who cast votes after they died outnumbered Republicans by more than 4 to 1.


Emphasis added.
