Ohio Dems Find 588 Uncounted Votes. Please Help Me with the Math!
#1
OK, the reports says:
"Election officials in Franklin County found 588 previously uncounted votes in a Columbus suburb. The result: O’Connor had a net gain of 190 votes, bringing the race’s margin down to 1,564."

So if the Dem received "net 190 more votes, wouldn't that work out to the Repub netting 398 MORE votes. I don't get it. Scratchinghead But I sucked at algebra.

398 split between them. The Dems gain 190. Total 588 new votes. If they keep 'finding' new votes and gaining each time...

588 total
split = 104 to 484 - difference = 190

They are trying to avoid the 'appearance' of cheating by pointing out that other candidates received votes as well.

398 votes are split between the candidates balancing everything out but the dems pick up the remaining 190 on top of what they get in the split. If they do that in enough counties then they can swing the election in their favor.

588 total
split = 104 to 484 - difference = 190

So your calculation means the Rs got 104 and the Ds got 484? How obtuse am I? There's 380 divided by two = 190? I flunked! Facepalm

If the dems received 190 out of 588 votes and there are 388 left, who were those 388 votes for and why are they being divided between dems and reps thereby giving dems and additional 194 on top of 190 amounting to 384 more votes?

When election officials brought two master personal electronic ballots – called PEBs – back to the Franklin County Board of Elections from a Worthington polling location, one was uploaded into the final, unofficial total of a super-tight congressional race.

The other was not.

The next day as bipartisan members of the board of elections were reviewing the race, they realized the PEB's results were missing. The PEB is a relatively small device that looks almost like a Nintendo cartridge. It's inserted into voting machines.

That PEB and its 588 votes were found. The breakdown was 198 votes for Republican Troy Balderson, 388 votes for Democrat Danny O'Connor and two for Green Party candidate Joe Manchik.

That meant a net gain of 190 votes for O'Connor. Balderson's already slim margin of victory shrunk to 1,564 votes.


Can someone explain how this works?

Of the total 588 votes - Rep received 104 of those votes and the Dem received 484 of them...

Thus the NET gain (difference) is 190 to the Dem.
