2. Michael Moore had a letter that youth turned out in a big way
See http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/message/index.php?mes...

<snip>
...."Contrary to all predictions and to tradition, MORE young adults (18-29) voted in last week's election than in any other since 18-year-olds were given the right to vote in 1972."

"It was the first time that a MAJORITY of all young adults came out to the polls: 51.6%.

"Young adult turnout was UP more than 9% higher than the 2000 election ("Big Voter Turnout Seen Among Young People"). "
<snip>

see the article for the links

5. Sure it was said. It was all part of the cover up to explain how
it was that bush won the election.It was also said that a large number of ppl voted on the values issue, etc........ All of these assertions are known as the great cover up of the stolen 2004 election. So in fact I guess you could add these cover up attempts to the list of evidence for the stolen 2004 election.
