Queens Woman Receives Deceased Father's Absentee Ballot

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- This election cycle is dredging up the pain of the past for one Queens woman.

Michelle Dimino's father, Anthony Baldomir, passed away in October 2012. Since then, she's been receiving his absentee ballots for the primaries and general elections.

Dimino has made several calls to the board of elections, even sending her father's death certificate on more than one occasion, but said he is still on the registration list.

"If I'm getting these, there must be in NYC alone hundreds maybe thousands of these going out to dead people. What are they doing with them? Are they shredding them, or ripping them up, or are people just mailing them in?" she said.

CBS2 reached out to the board of elections for comment but have not heard back yet.
