Oh, jeez — it looks the first major vote-tallying computer error has come out of Ohio, to the tune of nearly 4,000 votes accidentally awarded to Bush in one voting precinct alone. Given that the current difference between Bush and Kerry in the state is 136,483 votes, and there are hundreds of voting precincts in Ohio, all it would take is 34 more errors like this and we’d have a new President. Of course, I also ask myself: why is this story currently only running on the local newspaper websites? It’s a pretty sobering indictment of our electoral process, at least when it comes to the few days after a close election.


the dems don’t deserve to win, because they are afraid to fight. the reason it is in the local paper is because kerry pussed out.
