15. They could still be releasing votes even if they were swamped...

They don't have to hold all the votes until the counting is done. I am an Obama supporter but if Lake County puts him over the top the Clinton campaign will cry foul because of how this was carried out, and you just KNOW the media will run with a possible election fraud meme, which is the last thing Obama needs after what should be a deal-closing night.
