181. 120 million votes were cast - not all counted

Part of the discrepancy lies with absentee and provisional ballots, which are much higher this year. Provisional ballots are also much more likely not to be counted.

------------

Driven by an intense race for the presidency, a greater percentage of Americans voted Tuesday than at any time in more than three decades.

Figures tabulated Wednesday by The Associated Press showed that 114.3 million people had voted with 99 percent of precincts reporting. However, about 120 million people cast ballots, including 5.5 million to 6 million absentee and provisional ballots yet to be counted, said Curtis Gans, director of the nonpartisan Committee for the Study of the American Electorate.
