Here’s what the Washington Secretary of State put on its Web site of past election results for the Dino Rossi-Chris Gregoire race for governor in 2004:
Please note: The results listed on this page reflect the vote totals on the date of the 2004 November General Election. In the 2004 Governor’s race two recounts and an election contest would follow changing the final results.
Well, that’s interesting. But why does the Secretary of State, the chief custodian of state election results, not tell us what actually happened? The results on that page are official, but wrong. Sheesh!
UPDATE: OK. I think I finally found a link that has the wrong vote totals, BUT it also has a disclaimer that actually tells you what the margin of Gregoire’s victory was. That would be 133 votes. (I sure hope the link works for you.)
Here’s one more LINK. Use this one to get all the recounts, as well as the final court decision. Thank you, Trova!
