  •  Broadwater's Okay (0+ / 0-)

    Just checked the official results on the Montana SOS site and it shows Broadwater as having cast 2,859 votes in the election. Go to sos.mt.gov for your own confirmation. Now you all can go back to sleep and quit worrying.

    •  Not Okay (0+ / 0-)

      Add up the individual results for each candidates.  You'll see that they report the correct number of votes cast, but add up the votes for any race, president, attorney general or whatever, and you'll see that the actual choices registered only for about 1,200 people.

        They screwed up and admitted it. But it's worth our doing this diligence in case it may have had an impact on the outcome. It didn't in this case, but reiterates why recounts in close elections are important.
