Cuyahoga County, OH

Turnout appeared to be over 100% in some areas, because absentees for entire wards were added in single precincts. However, turnout was actually surpressed.

High third-party results in several strong Kerry support precincts revealed patterns of cross-voting, casting ballots with equipment for one precinct and counting with equipment for another. In Cuyahoga County, 7/8th of their voters shared locations with precincts using different ballot orders. Combinations of ballot orders determine cross-voting outcomes. The arrangement of the ballot order combinations created higher probabilities of cross-voting and Kerry-Bush vote-switching in areas of highest Kerry support. Because Nader's place on the ballot was converted to disqualified, cross-votes could also go uncounted. The non-vote percentages also indicated cross-voting. Statistical analysis revealed correlations between Kerry support, third-party voting, and percentage of non-votes. Sorting precincts according to cross-vote outcomes revealed the cross-voting. Kerry votes were converted to Bush votes, non-votes, and third party candidate votes moreso than vice-versa because Cuyahoga County, Ohio's largest, has 2/3 Kerry voters.
