53. No, that post is wrong...
I posted this info in the other thread as well. It is a red herring:

Here is the Canvass report for 2000: ...

Total ballots cast for President = 574,777
(On page 3, near the bottom. You have to add up the totals for the different candidates),

Here is the Canvass report for 2004: ...

Total ballots cast for President = 652,381
(Search the page for "Kerry" to find the listings for President. Again, you have to total the numbers)

I have no idea where the "218,981" less votes cast in 2004 over 2000 came from. It clearly is not supported in the actual numbers.
