34. I can not grasp this
I have been looking at Ohio data off and on for several weeks trying to see if there is a correlation with the types of machines used in Ohio. I had the type of machine for each county, but did not have a list of those counties using Triad machines, until rosebud57 posted it for me.

Looks like you and I were working on the same thing, but I'm not sure if I grasp how you are looking at this.

>>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.<<

I can not get the same numbers that you have posted, so I must be missing something.

Lets just look at one county for example, Auglazie county.
In 2000 Gore had 5,564 votes or 28% of the total of 19,892 votes.
In 2004 Kerry had 5,904 votes or 25.6% of the total of 23,031 votes.
So are you saying that if Kerry had 28% of the total 2004 votes for Auglazie county, it would be 28% of 23,031, which is (6,449 votes - Gores 5,564) = 885 more votes?
