COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)An error with an electronic voting
system gave President Bush 3,893 extra votes in suburban
Columbus, elections officials said.
Franklin County's unofficial results had Bush receiving 4,258
votes to Democrat John Kerry's 260 votes in a precinct in
Gahanna. Records show only 638 voters cast ballots in that
Bush actually received 365 votes in the precinct, Matthew
Damschroder, director of the Franklin County Board of
Elections, told The Columbus Dispatch.
State and county election officials did not immediately
respond to requests by The Associated Press for more details
about the voting system and its vendor, and whether the error,
if repeated elsewhere in Ohio, could have affected the
Bush won the state by more than 136,000 votes, according to
unofficial results, and Kerry conceded the election on
Wednesday after acknowledging that 155,000 provisional ballots
yet to be counted in Ohio would not change the result. (Full
The Secretary of State's Office said Friday it could not
revise Bush's total until the county reported the error.

Palm Beach County Logs 88,000 More Votes Than Voters
November 5, 2004 04:56 PM
According to the official election results posted on the Palm
Beach County election website www.pbcelections.org/
542,835 ballots were cast for a presidential candidate while
only 454,427 voters turned out for the election (including
absentee). This leaves a discrepancy of 88,408 votes cast for
the presidential candidates.
Palm Beach County's supervisor of elections is Theresa LePore
who is known for the 2000 Presidential Election and the
notorious "butterfly ballot" that caused confusion among
seniors and other Floridians.
Other election oddities from ustogether.org/
occurred throughout Florida with some counties registering a
400% increase in expected voter turnout among Republicans
while Democrats supposedly experienced a -60% decline in
expected support within certain counties. The 50+ counties
experiencing the high percentage fluctuations in expected
turnout used optical scan voting machines on November 2nd.
Vote discrepancies were also found in Gahanna, Ohio which gave
an extra 4,000 votes to President Bush. The error was
explained away by Franklin County administrators as a "glitch"
in the electronic voting system.
Update: Palm Beach County has updated their numbers and added
91,802 absentee ballots and 1,041 provisional ballots. The
vote totals for president increased by 1,543. To view an

While Palm Beach County appears to have accounted for the
discrepancy, this underscores the flaws in the system and data
