Interesting and it has been documented before in other states but there isn't much than has or can be done unless it becomes too obvious.
Possibly requiring that ALL absentee ballots be verified against homeowner or lessee of the address it is sent to. Even that would easily be bypassed with a PO Box.
Maybe the rules should just be changed to allow a person to vote everywhere they own a home (think how many times the Kerry's could vote) or only allow voting in the state one has indicated to the IRS as their primary home. The state could just bounce the voter registration against the tax return but that wouldn't work in states without income taxes.
More realistically though absentee ballots for Federal Elections could be limited to those citizens living outside the United States and funneled through a federal clearinghouse.
What it really worrisome is that some of these people will still be voting twice long after they have been buried.

Some 46,000 New Yorkers are registered to vote in both the city and Florida, a shocking finding that exposes both states to potential abuses that could alter the outcome of elections, a Daily News investigation shows...
But The News found that between 400 and 1,000 registered voters have voted twice in at least one election, a federal offense punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine....
Since 68% of the double registered voters are Democrats and only 12% are Republicans then Gore's margin probably wasn't as close as he thought. How will it affect Kerry?
