203. Is there a national map of which voting methodology was used where?
I would Love to see a visual presentation, broken down by counties if possible since that varied within some states, showing how the vote was collected/recorded for this election. Which areas used Diebold without paper trails, which used evoting with paper trails, which used optical scanners, punch cards etc.? It would be valuable to compare a number of things including obviously which methods came closest to matching the exit polls, but also which methods recorded higher and lower voter turn outs relative to trends in "comparable" counties (either in that same state or in a state with a similar voter profile) using alternate technology.

Also am I mistaken that during the day poll watchers kept records of the number of voters who had already voted in individual polling districts (which were used for voter turn out efforts) that we can compare to the final recorded figures for those polling precincts to see if there is any pattern of under reporting of votes?
