In a race so tight, it may never be known for certain.

Henry Brady
The controversial "butterfly" style ballot in Palm Beach, Florida has created a tremendous stir, and there is now plenty of anecdotal evidence of voters claiming to have punched the wrong place on the ballot. However, there is no easy way of determining exactly how many votes the ballot may have cost Gore and Lieberman.

A Note on the Voting Irregularities in Palm Beach
