29. I'm pretty sure you're referring to the 680 technically illegal overseas ballots

Bush wanted them counted because he believed that most of them would be for him. It's difficult to say how many of those should have been counted. One could make a case that none of them should have been counted, since they were technically illegal. In any event, the allowing of these overseas ballots were made in a manner that was very favorable to Bush, as those from Bush counties seemed to get favorable treatment. We can't say for sure how many net votes Bush picked up in this way, since we don't know the identity of the votes:
