The Votes Are in... Again

We don't know yet what will happen in the rest of Ohio, but Washington County's recount of last month's presidential election has produced the same results as before.

President Bush won the county again by nearly 5,000 votes. The president received 17, 532 votes, while Democrat Kerry's tally was 12,538.

Two minor-party candidates who were on the county's ballot received a combined total of 146 votes. Ohio's electoral college officially cast its 20 votes for the president Monday night, but those challenging the November results say there were too many irregularities on Election Day to certify for sure Bush won the election.

The state's Supreme Court has been asked to review the election results, and if the court decides to hear that challenge it could throw out the results and declare a new winner.

Results of the recounts for the entire state aren't expected to be complete until next week. The state's Supreme Court has been asked to review the election results, and if the court decides to hear that challenge it could throw out the results and declare a new winner.
