I just can't believe all the things people say

I haven't confirmed these results for my own self, I'll do that tonight after work hours, but this is really interesting.


In summary, someone did some statistical analysis of the percentages of registered Republicans and Democrats in counties that used optical-scan ballot systems, and noticed that in many counties where optical-scan was used, the recorded vote totals were far off what would be expected if people voted their affiliations, as an example, Baker county with 24.3% registered Republicans voted 77.7% for Bush.
