      That around 7500 votes in Prosser's favor would be found?
      Somewhere I did a totally off the cuff estimate of around 1 in 10,000.  But that does not mean it could not happen.  As I never tire of quoting:

      If you mean that mistakes are made by County election boards, I think that is commonplace.
