Bush/Cheney '04: "More votes than voters: Now THAT'S a mandate!"
Look at page 23 on the voter returns for Franklin County, Ohio:

http://www.franklincountyohio.gov/boe/04UnofficialResul...

Check out the presidential totals for precinct Gahana 1:

The Libertarian: 13
Bush/Cheney: 6253
Kerry/Edwards: 1916
Constitutional Party: 10

Now, check out the senatorial vote in that precinct:

Republican: 2848
Democrat: 1259

Did 4000 people vote for Bush/Cheney and just skip the senatorial vote?

No. Check out the precinct voter count: 4346.

An additional 4000 Bush/Cheney votes in box Gahana 1-B: go figure!

2. And that's being corrected? Didn't think so.
The entire precinct needs to be invalidated.

5. I sent it on to Randi Rhodes - let her have fun with this!
I think that their "typo" gave the weed way to many votes. How many more typos are in their records?

10. Computer Geek Conspiracy Corner Time
Edited on Thu Nov-04-04 06:39 PM by salvorhardin
8192 votes were cast for president? Interesting number for a computer geek. 2000 base 16, 20000 base 8. 8 X 2^10 or 8K (base 2). I get a little suspicious when supposed real world numbers suddenly start matching magic computer numbers. Usually evidence of a bad hashing function. Probably just a coincidence though.
