Presidential Race Not Over in Missouri

Presidential Race Not Over in Missouri

By Jo Mannies

11/11/2008

~snip~

Republican John McCain's statewide lead has shrunk to fewer than 5,000 votes, as various counties have recounted and revised their totals from last Tuesday's election.

Since Election Day, Obama has gained almost 1,000 votes statewide, most of it from St. Louis County.

County election officials have recovered almost 3,200 additional votes in the last few days. Most of them came from various electronic voting machines where the votes had apparently not been tallied by polling place workers during the initial collection of votes.

Missouri remains the only state where it's officially unclear which candidate carried the state. And it may take another two or three weeks before a winner is declared.

McCain's latest lead is 4,968 votes, out of more than 2.9 million cast.

Yet to be counted: an estimated 7,000 provisional ballots most cast in Obama-leaning areas that are just now being examined to determine which ones were cast by properly registered voters in the correct polling place.

4. Missouri going Blue would be
Superb! Even if it is just slightly Blue, it sure beats slightly Red.
