In New Mexico, Bush vs. Kerry Is Still an Issue as Votes Trickle In
By REUTERS
Published: November 14, 2004

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/14/politics/14vote.html?...

ANTA FE, N.M., Nov. 13 (Reuters) - Senator John Kerry has conceded, President Bush has laid out his plans for a second term and New Mexicans still do not know who won the election in their state.

New Mexico is the only state that does not have a clear-cut winner in the presidential vote, and state officials have been red-faced over the slow count. The state pledged to speed up counting ballots after it took about a month to tally the vote in the 2000 presidential race, where Al Gore beat Mr. Bush by 366 votes.

With most of the ballots counted, Mr. Bush has about 373,000 votes to 365,000 for Mr. Kerry, and several news outlets have projected Mr. Bush as the winner of New Mexico's five electoral votes.

On Friday, all of New Mexico's counties were required to have completed a count in their regions, but one rural county still had problems and did not meet the deadline. The secretary of state's office said Mr. Bush's lead over Mr. Kerry had narrowed to about 6,800 votes, according to initial tallies of the provisional ballots submitted to the office on Friday.

1. thanks for starting this thread


my favorite line in this article is

Republicans said money that should have gone toward counting votes was spent on a marketing campaign intended to increase turnout.


so happy to be here!

5. I have an idea as to why the count in NM is taking so long

BREAKING -- SATURDAY NOV 13 2004: Black Box Voting is implementing fraud diagnostics on the state of New Mexico. Information we recently received is indicative of widespread vote manipulation. We are not going to publicize the specifics here.

Let's try to keep quiet about it, though. It sounds like they don't want to deal with potential interference.
