WASHINGTON (CNN) — A woman’s obituary published Monday has found a new way to respond to the tumultuous and contentious 2016 presidential race.

The obituary published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch states that the late Mary Anne Noland, 68, of Richmond, Virginia decided to “pass” instead of vote in the 2016 presidential election.
