Isn't electronic voting fun? It allows for things like voter turnouts in Orange County that are GREATER than 100%. I also ran across another article (but cannot find the link now) that stated that in an extremely large number of counties across the US, voter turnout was much higher, in some cases double, previous national averages: normally thirty-something percent. This is one of those grey-area situations. You cannot absolutely prove there was a problem with voting computers because the results are not impossible (60% is suspicious, but possible). Nor can you prove the counts to be correct because there is not a 1:1 mapping between a voter and an indisputable physical object like a paper ballot or collected receipt.
