Obama’s Grandmother’s Absentee Ballot will be Counted by Hawaii

ABC News’ Tahman Bradley, Rigel Anderson and Arnab Datta Report:

While Sen. Barack Obama’s late grandmother Madelyn Dunham will not live to see the outcome of this historic election, her 2008 vote will count.

Hawaii Chief Elections Officer Kevin Cronin told ABC News this evening that the absentee ballot cast by Dunham before she passed away will count. Cronin said Dunham’s absentee ballot was received on October 27 and found to meet the requirements of a valid absentee ballot and will therefore be counted with the rest of the state’s ballots tomorrow.

Obama learned that his grandmother lost her battle with cancer early Monday. She was 86.
