|Prisoners, Dead Still Registered To Vote|
Treasure Coast elections officials have removed 11,308 felons and deceased people from the list of registered voters in the past two years.
However, as voting gets under way for the general election, 1,107 people who by law should have been removed remained among the 360,000 registered voters in Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin counties, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
The voter list includes: Kobie Gary, a son of famed attorney Willie Gary, who in April was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for conspiracy to grow and distribute marijuana out of a home in Hobe Sound; Eryn Allegra, a Port St. Lucie woman who smothered her 8-year-old son to death on Christmas Day 2008; and Ira Hatch, who in July pleaded no contest to a racketeering charge after being accused of stealing millions of dollars from his Vero Beach title company.
