Florida is the New Florida
Although many discussions of voting anomalies focused on Ohio, a statistical analysis
of Florida voting patterns
performed by sociologists at University of California, Berkeley
suggests that electronic touch screen voting
in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade may have credited George Bush with up to 260,000 extra votes in Florida. The discrepancy is not enough to change who won Florida, but it could have narrowed Bush's lead to 90,000 votes instead of 350,000, highlighting the need for better auditing of elections with electronic voting.
