14. facts matter
Well, maybe that's just me.

If you really think SouthernDem is wrong, maybe you should head over to DailyKos and see if you have any more luck listening to people over there. Or maybe you would like to slug it out with the activist(s) who put together this site on "The Mysterious Mecklenburg Undervote of 2006", which correctly shows the NC-08 undervote as a bit over 4%. Or with Ellen Theisen. Maybe she's a "machine head."

Really, where do you get off implying that anyone who disagrees with you is trying to "beat back the Election Reform folks"?

"SD claims that AB1 has 948 undervotes!"

Nope. Folks can head over to Southern Dem's diary to verify that that claim doesn't appear. What Southern Dem points out is that including the paper absentee, curbside and provisional figures throws off the totals. (But I think SoDem's bit about "discarded" provisional ballots is confusing. The main problem is that all the absentee, curbside, and provisional ballots are included in the turnout figures for all three House districts.)

As has been pointed out repeatedly, the "official results" you are linking to are the same as the precinct-level data, only totaled.

People can believe what they want, but they can't say that they weren't told. Anyone with questions can PM or e-mail me.
