24. here's how it started
http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/04297/400512.stm

a volunteer for kerry who stopped by our house last night said that if students that have been scammed by this show up at their original designated polling place (assuming they had already been a registered democrat) and they're not on the list, they can use provisional ballots as long as they're still registered in pennsylvania.

i know i have a verrryyyy low post count, but i'm no freeper. i've lurked here for almost 2 years; i just don't post to boards much.

hope that helps, and good luck.
