Some of you have heard that Dennis Kucinich called for a vote recount in New Hampshire. If your local news is like my local news, he sounded as though he had sour grapes over the results. This isn't the case. Check out his actual statement here:

Kucinich Asks for New Hampshire Recount in the Interest of Election Integrity

The issue seems to be that there is a disparity between the paper ballots and the machine ballots. According to the paper ballots, not only did Obama beat Clinton by a significant margin, but each of the other candidates did better than when compared by the machine ballots. Clinton was the only candidate that did better in the machine voting. Statistically, this is unlikely. While this doesn't mean that voting fraud actually occurred, it's a significant anomally that needs attention. You can take a look at the raw numbers and percentages here - A Closer Look At The Count

There's also a problem with the exit polls not matching up with the election results, which was a huge problem in Ohio in 2004. It's also an interesting note that the exit poll deviations did not start occurring until the 2000 election. Food for thought.
