Which county had the least number of votes cast?

When I have time, I copy-paste all of the county tables into one big spreadsheet and do some totals/averages.

A few points...

I think Kalawao casts its votes with Maui County (after all, it's the only county in the nation that is administered by the state instead of local government)

Alaska doesn't have counties!!

I'm pretty sure it is Loving, which at the last census had only 60 something residents. Trivia note! In 1992 Loving was one of the handful of Texas counties which voted for Perot!

Loving has a permanent population of around 120 or so. It's small and rural - not a lot of people. Only one town in the whole county.

Ah, but that was my point.

Kalawao is legally a county, but no votes are attributed to it.

Hence, fewer votes than Loving.

You cann't get lower than zero.

^ And those states are growing fast because their cities are growing fast. In Nevada, the least populated counties are losing population while Las Vegas is rapidly gaining.

There's an area in Montana that isn't part of any county (the part of Yellowstone NP in Montana). I'm not sure if it has zero, one, or a handful inhabitants, or where they vote.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Kenedy County, Texas, is always close to the fewest numbers of votes.  This year, Kerry - 85, Bush - 82, other - 2.

More remarkable is the 2000 census and election.  The census showed 67 persons living in the county, while there were 156 voters (that's 233% turnout of the AAP, all-ages voting population).  It looks like maybe they kept the turnout down a bit this year to avoid too much suspicion.

Loving County is the least populous county in the country.  It had a short oil boom in the early 1930s when the population reached 600, and the county was organized (in Texas, counties were chalked off, and then when there were 150 settlers, the county was organized).  An earlier organization of Loving County was fraudulent - organizers of an irrigation company held a fraudulent election with make-believe voters who elected a county government made up of company officials.

I have visited Mentone, the county seat.  The thing I remember most is that there was a dog sleeping in the parking in front of the courthouse square just off the road.  There was so little traffic it was apparently a safe thing to do.

Loving County - Texas Handbook

Loving County is named in honor of Oliver Loving, a pioneering cattleman who with his partner Charles Goodnight developed the Goodnight-Loving trail up the Pecos River into New Mexico and then on to the Pikes Peak gold mining areas around Denver.  The novel Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry which was made into a TV miniseries was based.  Note the story about Goodnight bring Loving's body back to Texas in the following article.

Does this mean that DC is "economically not viable, not to mention hell to live in"

Census Bureau says that this area was moved to the adjoining counties of Gallatin and Park county (1997?).  Previously the Census Bureau counted it as a county equivalent, which must mean that Montana must have considered the area to be outside any of its counties.  I assume that this legal status was changed, and the Census Bureau responded.

According to that map the greatest jumps in growth are in "red states". So much for that theory Opebo.
