Bernalillo County Withdraws 68,000 Votes By Karen Moses Assistant Managing Editor
Bernalillo County withdrew all early and absentee voting results from its tally early Wednesday morning after discovering a glitch in its data. That means more than 68,000 votes weren't included in the last results released by the county. Television reports and some newspaper stories relied on what the county had released earlier. New vote totals for early and absentee voting could affect several close races. "They were just not getting good results for the early and absentee results," said Cliff Aldrich, assistant director of information technology for the county. County workers were expected to return at 8 a.m. to try to sort out the problem.

I hear this was a technical goof, however -- not the kind of rampant fraud that happened in Florida. They merely didn't count, for some reason, the Bush votes when the Republican button was pushed.
