Did Kerry win the military vote? (Please post stories here)

I am starting to hear stories that Kerry may have won the military vote. Most states are just posting the results for the overseas ballots in the last couple of days. In Austin, TX Kerry got 259 votes, compared to Bush who only got 138 votes. That's a huge margin. I guess the military folks might not be so thrilled with W after all?

Has anyone else seen any reports about the military vote tallies?


NOVEMBER 12, 2004

The late count of provisional and overseas ? predominantly military ? ballots took place Sunday and Monday at the county courthouse. White added 54 votes to her total, whereas Baxter only added 30. (As an interesting footnote, Butts said the majority of military votes in the Travis Co. presidential race went to John Kerry, who took 259 votes to George Bush's 138.) Witnessing the vote count for the Democrats were Butts and lawyer MariBen Ramsey (both representing the White campaign) along with local party Chair Chris Elliott and coordinated campaign director Glen Maxey. Republican poll watchers during the two-day process featured several attorneys from the Locke Liddell & Sapp law firm, as well as the always unpredictable former (Democratic) County Judge Bill Aleshire, representing the Baxter campaign on behalf of the Riggs & Aleshire law firm. County GOP Chair Alan Sager also attended.
