Man with heart attack votes absentee from a hospital bed
Terry Kopplin didn't let a heart attack prevent him from voting.
Kopplin, 69, used an absentee ballot.
Nothing unusual about that. Except that Kopplin had a heart attack at 7:30 a.m. on Election Day and while he was recovering in his hospital bed he managed to make sure his vote counted.
"People in the Election Commission weren't sure what to do," Kopplin said in a phone interview Tuesday evening from his St. Joseph's Hospital bed. "Evidently this was a first - a guy with a heart attack wants to vote."
