70. I think it is true that voter registration drives were held
disproportionately in the cities -- Columbus (Franklin); Hamilton (Cincinnati); Cuyahoga (Cleveland). ACT, the Kerry Campaign, Unions were all in over-drive registering potentially Democratic voters. One observer, who had registered voters in the South during 'Freedom Summer' decades ago, said that the energy put into the voter reg drives in Ohio this last year outdid Freedom Summer.

The following is important, "One interesting thing about this is that the whole correlation between county size and Gore/Kerry discrepancy was attributed to three huge counties (Franklin, Hamilton, and Coyahoga)." This says that Gore/Kerry discrepancy differences between counties of similar sizes should reveal something about where we should direct our attention.
