135. The senior vote might be weighted more because of refusals....
and missed persons. Mitofsky says that he weights for refusals and missed persons within a precinct.

It appears that the data (or at least the portion of the data in Blue22's spreadsheets) is Mitofsky's "final" exit poll data: The "raw" Kerry/Bush fields show a Kerry lead that is reversed in the "weighted" Kerry/Bush fields.

Perhaps the senior vote could be used as a control to help us identify how much of the weighting is due to Mitofsky's final switchero of the Kerry-Bush vote.
