241. Ok, and I understand that. But the way the title came across....
Was very vague, saying this was an "overvote study related to the election" (2000)

When Mebane was writing that piece I thought he was going to discuss what the affects were in Ohio, or what was actually happening in Ohio. I thought the whole point for him being on the team was to address that issue, not study the differences between overvotes for a totally different election.

I guess what I'm trying to say, is it was simply worded poorly to be able to address what the report was about. If he wanted to do a seperate study about overvotes, I would have preferred it to be a cliffnotes version or something like that. It didn't make any sense to me to put out misleading information about Al Gore in the middle of the Ohio election investigation, it just didn't really make sense.

And I think it is possible for 100 people to do a comprehensive study, but they must first have the will and the money to do that study, as at this point it is completely neccesary.

We need to know exactly how many votes are getting lost, stolen, or likewise and discover a permanent solution to this problem. This is only getting done by citizens standing up and rolling out parallel elections like in california, its not getting done by throwing numbers back and forth using statistical guesswork I'm sorry to report.
