I have updated corrected write-in figures for the state of New Hampshire in the General Election of 2004 for Presidential Candidates: Michael Badnarik, Michael Peroutka, and “Write-ins” (i.e. other write-ins) at the city/town and precinct level. Upon compiling the precinct-level data several weeks ago, I noticed that the data for individual write-in candidates posted on their web site under “Individual write-ins” did not reconcile with the total scattering vote at the precinct level (the figures did correlate at the county level). I emailed the New Hampshire Secretary of State Elections Division to ask about the discrepancy. Today, I received the following (very interesting) reply:
I received your email about the discrepancies in the write in votes for president. After having 3 different people work on these numbers, I decided to do it myself. Yes there were discrepancies. I went through each and every town and made corrections. I hope to have those corrections posted on our website in a couple of days. (maybe today..can’t promise) Thank you for calling this to my attention.
The new figures have been updated on the Atlas.
