Ohio numbers support claims of Triad fraud
Advertisements [?]
(My son and I have posted this before, but in light of recent events I think it carries new significance.)

I looked at the difference in votes (in each Ohio county) from 2004 and what would have been expected if Kerry had obtained the same percentage of votes in the county as Gore had in 2000.

Here's what I found:

Electronic voting:
38,377 more Kerry votes than expected, average of 5,539 per county

Optical scan:
323 more Kerry votes than expected, average of 27 per county

Punch card other:
62,406 more Kerry votes than expected, average of 2,229 per county

***Punch cards by Triad:
13,369 LESS Kerry votes than expected, average of 326 less per county

Total non-Triad: 101,506 more Kerry votes than expected, average of 2,160 per county

So, if the Triad counties had voted (in comparison with 2000) similarly to all the other counties combined, there would have been a net of 2,486 extra Kerry votes per each of the 41 counties, providing a net Kerry gain of 101,926 extra net Kerry votes.

This analysis assumes that there was no fraud in any of the other (non-Triad) counties. If there was fraud in other counties, not only would that count have to be added to the Kerry vote, but that would indicate more votes for Kerry in the Triad counties as well.

The above analysis means is that if massive election fraud took place in Ohio, it probably involved mostly the Triad government punch card machines. These machines were not used in any other state. Of course, there could have been fraud in other counties as well (If the exit polls were accurate that would mean Kerry winning Ohio by over 260,000 votes, which is a lot more than I calculated here.)
