121. It helps to give an example...
For instance:

Adair County with 70% of the vote counted
(Tulsa newspaper 11/3): Kerry 3,704 votes.

Adair County with 100% of the vote counted
(final results-CNN): Kerry 2,560 votes.

How could Kerry lose votes in the final count?
(Answer: Machines that count backwards.)

And this happened in 57 counties!

Here are a few more:

TulsaWorld newspaper-70% of the vote counted:

County--------GB--------JK

Adair---------2,137----3,704
Alfalfa----------920----1,075
Atoka----------839----2,897
Beaver---------807----1,114
Beckham-----2,811----2,343
Blaine--------1,537----1,792
....

Compare to the "FINAL" count from CNN--100% of vote counted:

County-----------GB---------JK

Adair -----------4,971-----2,560
Alfalfa----------2,201-------470
Atoka----------3,140-------1,946
Beaver---------2,271---------297
Beckham-------5,454-------1,931
Blaine----------3,199-------1,222
...

Votes Kerry LOST between the 70% and the 100% counts:

Adair-----1,144
Alfalfa------605
Atoka------951
Beaver-----817
Beckham---412
Blaine------570
