Bob Dole: If I die before 2016, I’ll vote absentee

SHARE Bob Dole: If I die before 2016, I’ll vote absentee

Bob Dole has already made it clear that he’s not running for president in 2016, even if he’s going on a nine-county tour in Kansas this week.

But the 90-year-old said he’s already made plans for how he’ll vote — sort of.

But my main concern about those elections is that, well, I just hope I’m still around to vote then, he said in an interview with McClatchy DC. If not … I plan to vote absentee.

He seems to have it thought out. Or maybe not.

I have no idea how they get the ballots back from up there, Dole said. But I will check it out. And send it back special delivery.

As far as his tour across Kansas, Dole says he simply wants to shake hands — with both Democrats and Republicans — and share some stories.
