273. I didnt see that, but...
I would be very aprehensive at trusting that statistic.

When polling - it is assumed that people who lie will lie an equal ammount with each reponse.

However, with this question I believe that more people will lie and say "yes" than will lie and say "no"

Also, was the question "have you voted before?" or was it "did you vote in the presidential election of 2000?" those are 2 totally different questions and will probably give 2 totally different answers.

Im just giving some alternative hypotheses... there are plenty more Im sure. Im just pointing out that this is not a "smoking gun".

Smoking gun = video tape, memo (that wasnt forged...), or audio tape, etc.
