Ohio pre-certification oddities - vanishing votes etc.

(on edit - I should point out that I am one of your neighbors to the north, a Canadian, and am unfamiliar with many of the names to whom people are suggesting that I send this. If you feel that someone else would benefit from this info, please feel free to forward it directly.)

On election night and on subsequent days, I captured readings from the Ohio SoS election results website. They're all loaded now into one huge spreadsheet and I'm seeing some disturbing things - some of which have been reported before and others, to the best of my knowledge, have not.

Readings were made regularly through Nov 15th. On Nov 17th, the site appeared to have been reset to 0 for all races, and on the 18th SOME but not all counties continued to be reported with updated totals, with others showing 0. Since many of these occurrances may have perfectly sound explanations, with the exception of the Lake and Lucas Counties vanishing votes, I have tried to avoid commenting on them.

All times listed are CST starting on Nov 2nd - times like 0010 or 0840 are Nov 3rd.

VANISHING VOTES
Fairfield County - election night by 2235cst, BADNARIK had recieved 523 votes, however between 2340cst and 2350cst his total dropped to 187 where it stayed until certification, at which point he gained 3 more votes.

Fairfield County - election night by 2235cst, PEROUTKA had recieved 708 votes, however between 0010cst and 0035cst his total dropped to 189 where it stayed until certification, at which point he gained 2 more votes.

Hamilton County - election night between 2055cst and 2130cst, the total for COBB went from 0 to 39541, which was identical to the total for KERRY. Then, between 2130cst and 2200cst, the total for COBB went from 39541 back to 0, but NO other totals changed.

Hocking County - election night by 2250cst SCHRINER had recieved 24 votes, however between 0000cst and 0010cst all of those votes vanished, and he ended with a certified total of 0.

Lake County - election night between 1935cst and 1945cst, the total for COBB went from 0 to 14883, which was identical to the total for KERRY. Those totals remained in place until 2035cst, when the COBB total went back to 0 and the KERRY totals went to 42191. COBB's total stayed at 0 until certification, at which point it went to 8.

Lake County - election night between 2010cst and 2035cst, the total for SCHRINER went from 0 to 90, but between 2035cst and 2055cst it went back to 0, where it stayed until certification, at which time it went to 1 vote.

Lucas County - election night between 2055cst and 2130cst, the total for COBB went from 0 to 4685, but between 2130cst and 2200cst it went back to 0, at the same time as the KERRY total went from 0 to 4685. Shortly after, at 2235cst, the COBB total went back up to 4685, where it stayed until 2315cst, at which time it went back down to 0 and stayed that way until certification, at which point it went to 8. (seems VERY similar to Lake county)

Medina County - election night between 2035cst and 2055cst, the total for PARKER went from 0 to 11, but between 2055cst and 2130cst it went back to 0, where it stayed.

Meigs County - election night between 2010cst and 2035cst, the total for PEROUTKA went from 0 to 103 but between 0010cst and 0035cst on Nov 3, his total went back to 0. Between 0035cst and 0055cst he regained 31 votes, which stayed with him through certification.

ONE SHOT WONDERS
Harrison County - election night posted just one set of results between 2200cst and 2235cst, and had no updates until certification, when BADNARIK lost 11 votes and BUSH and KERRY each lost exactly 44 votes.

Richland County - election night posted just one set of results between 2130cst and 2200cst, and had no updates until certification.

DELAYED REPORTING
Huron County - no election night results were revealed until between 2340cst and 2350cst.

Jackson County - no election night results were revealed until between 0055cst and 0115cst

Miami County - no election night results were revealed until between 2300cst and 2315cst.

Tuscarawas County - no election night results were revealed until between 0010cst and 0035cst.

SHARED VOTE NUMBERS
Columbiana County - sometime after Nov 15 at 2230cst, BUSH and KERRY each gained exactly 542 votes.

Lake County - sometime after Nov 15 at 2230cst, BUSH and KERRY each gained exactly 1578 votes.

Harrison County - split loss of 44 each. see ONE SHOT WONDERS.

PROVISIONAL EXTRAS
With my understanding of provisional ballots, I had expected to see totals displayed after Nov 15th rise by no more than the number of provisional ballots issued. I had assumed that absentee ballots would have already been counted by the 15th, which was my last reading prior to the apparent reset of the web site totals on the 17th.

Adams County - although only 184 provisional ballots were issued, sometime after Nov 15 at 2230cst, 264 votes were added.

Allen County - although only 1374 provisional ballots were issued, sometime after Nov 15 at 2230cst, 1631 votes were added.
