Didn't even check if they were Kerry or Bush's. They are still weird
By subtracting actual vote from registered voters to get attendance % and then selecting the precincts with high attendance (over 80%) we get 55,000 over votes with atypically high attendance... I wonder if they were all e-votes..

Did I find 55,00 "weird votes" ?
Update [2004-11-20 12:35:8 by lawnorder]: Someone found a "gotcha" on my numbers: Do people have to vote in their home precincts? If not, that may be an explanation, no?
Still... Wouldn't those votes out of precinct be tallied somewhere else ?
votes out of precinct ?
Adding them all up (over + undervotes) we get a "normal" number of 500,000 "under" votes. or 25% of Cuyahoga stayed home in election day
