BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

A deceased woman who died in November is leading the race for the Democratic nomination for a seat on a Belleville precinct committee.

Janet Schmidt currently reads the race for Belleville Precinct 7 Commeitteeman. However, Illinois law does not allow St. Clair County to take her name off the ballot.

Dave Pusa, a write in candidate, received 58 votes.

Schmidt’s husband says he wants the Democratic Party to appoint Pusa as the party’s nominee for the open seat.
