    Man dies, revived at poll...

    ...and immediately makes sure he voted. True American.

    Ty Houston was filling out his absentee ballot at the township offices when an elderly woman near him started screaming.

    "I was filling out the form as were an elderly couple sitting at a nearby table," Houston, 48, told the Detroit News on Tuesday. "His wife, who was helping him fill out the ballot, asked him a couple of questions but he didn't respond. She screamed for help, and I went over to see what I could do."

    A registered home-care nurse, Houston responded immediately, moving the victim to the floor and assessing the situation. "He was dead," Houston said. "He had no heartbeat, and he wasn't breathing."

    He started performing CPR, and a few minutes later the man started breathing again. He had a tracheotomy tube in his throat, but could speak."He knew his name and his wife's name," Houston said.

    But the victim's first question after his near-death experience took everyone by surprise. "Did I vote?" he asked astonished onlookers.The man's wife tried to reassure him that it wasn't important, but Houston says the man responded that only two things were important: "That I love you and that I finished what I came here to doŚvote."

    They checked. He had.

    Suddenly i feel inferior for complaining about my wait time.

    We had an elderly lady at one of my precincts yesterday who was voting, and passed out at the booth. She hit her face on the voting machine and EMS had to rush out there. Once they got her coherent and responsive, she refused to go to the hospital with our EMS guys until she cast her vote.
