As a resident of FL, I demand Attorney General @pambondi launch an investigation into how SLC got 141% voter turnout. floridapoliticalpress.com/2012/11/10/st-…

Twitter user @NathanWurtzel points out that the figure is based on “cards cast,” which is not the same as votes cast.

Here is the St. Lucie County tally sheet. “Cards cast” is not the same as voters who voted. No 141% turnout. is.gd/Zm41L9 PDF

It appears that “cards cast” refers to the number of ballots times the number of pages on each ballot. So if the ballot is two pages long, “cards cast” should be twice the number of ballots cast.

@jonnycabani There were 12 constitutional amendment questions in FL, so ballot or “card” was so big voters needed 2. Each cast 2 “cards.”

It’s doesn’t say “votes cast”, it says “cards cast”. Each ballot consisted of (wait for it) TWO CARDS. Why is that so hard? #Sayfie

.@laborunionrpt No. Our ballot was 2 sheets to be fed into scanner. Each voter cast 2 “vote cards”. % is number of cards vs reg voters.

Let me repeat: THERE WAS NOT 141% TURNOUT IN ST LUCIE CTY. Each ballot cast was “two cards”. #sayfie

Does voter fraud exist? Yes.

Is it prevalent enough to explain Barack Obama’s margin of victory (about three million votes nationwide, about 74,000 votes in Florida)?  No.
