Ohio Counties End Official Ballot Counts

By M.R. KROPKO
Associated Press Writer

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Ohio counties finished certifying votes in the presidential race Wednesday, and the results showed that election officials accepted about 77 percent of the provisional ballots that were cast.

Ohio's 88 counties reported validating 121,598 provisional ballots from 156,977 checked, according to an Associated Press tabulation. The deadline for counties to certify election results was Wednesday.

Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell plans to certify the final result Monday.

President Bush's margin of victory against John Kerry on Nov. 2 was 136,483 votes. Kerry conceded after figuring he would not get enough of the provisional ballot vote to overtake Bush's total.



Provisional ballots are used when poll workers cannot immediately confirm if a voter was properly registered.

Carlo LoParo, a spokesman for Blackwell's office, said there will be no available breakdown of how many provisionals went to Bush or Kerry. He said the final tally will be inclusive of all votes.

Meanwhile, a lawyer representing at least 25 voters who feel their right to vote was violated said he would file a lawsuit Thursday directly to the Ohio Supreme Court. Cliff Arnebeck said the case will seek to document that election abuses in Ohio were widespread.

It's over, really it's over guys! Your Man Kerry conceded and you don't see him on TV every day asking for a re-count. Investigate the abuses as we're all sure they happened, but realize they wouldn't chanege the elcetion with the evidence at hand.
