Ohio to Delay Destroying of 2004 Presidential Ballots
August 31, 2006

With paper ballots from the 2004 presidential election in Ohio scheduled to be destroyed next week, the secretary of state in Columbus, under pressure from critics, said yesterday that he would move to delay the destruction at least for several months.

The critics, including an independent candidate for governor and a team of statisticians and lawyers, say preliminary results from their ballot inspections show signs of more widespread irregularities than previously known.

There is a gap between the numbers provided in the local level records, which until recently no one has been allowed to see, and the official final tallies that were publicly released after this election, and we want to figure out why that gap is there.

After eight months inspecting 35,000 ballots from 75 rural and urban precincts, the critics say that they have found many with signs of tampering and that in some precincts the number of voters differs significantly from the certified results.

Is this what Kerry was refering to?

1. I'm glad they're putting it off.
I'm resisting the urge to cattily snark about being glad that they're finally getting around to investigate, and will settle for being glad that the ballots aren't being irretrievably destroyed.
