14. Can anyone tell me why votes kept backtracking?
This is how the changes went for Edwards:
24709, 26221, 26683, 26773, 27319,
27137, 27319, 27578, 27319, 27578,
27798, 27813, 28088, 27813, 28088,
27813, 28088, 27813, 28088, 27813,
28323, 28668, 29060, 28323, 29060,
29126, 29481, 29126, 29918, 29126,
29918, 29126, 30337, 30466, 30337,
30466, 30662, 30466, 30877, 30859,
30877, 30662, 30877, 32548, 33007,
32548, 33007, 33165, 32548, 30662,
33165, 33428, 33490, 33428, 33572,
33846, 33490, 39472, 33846, 33572,
33846, 33490, 33572, 33846, 33572,
33490, 33846, 34526, 33846, 33572,
34526, 33846, 34526,

I also noticed it with Richardson when he was in the 8000 range and fell back to the 7000 range.

Then just for fun, I began tracking Hillarys:
75831, 82606, 82938, 82606, 82938,
82606, 82938, 84906, 82938, 84776,
84096, 84776, 84096, 84776, 84896,
84951

I just used my refresh button and only wrote down when the numbers changed.

It may just be normal with voting machines, but I am curious why the numbers backtrack on many of the candidates.

I wish I had taken note of Obamas, but by then I kept posting questions as to why it was happening, hoping someone would clue me in.
