Maybe...but i know at less than .5% the state pays for the recount process.

I thought I heard earlier that anything less than 1%, if the one with the lowest number requests it, it's mandatory.

Pretty much...but it looks to be so close that absentee ballots will definitely be counted.



It pays off to be a sometimes

Yeah, they do, but I think the loser still has to request it. It's just a formality, though.

Kind of crazy, but with 99% of the votes counted, Webb is ahead in Virginia.

Webb
1,141,052 50%

Allen
(Incumbent)
1,138,676 49%

Parker
25,512 1%

I wonder what it will end up?

this must mean that all of the American people disagree with everything president Bush has ever done and especially everything that has ever happened since we invaded in Iraq.

i mean, just to use the logic of some posters in here.
