It's "overwrite", not "override".
God help us, these people are so technologically illiterate!

I checked the NC county I live in and we voted for Kerry 63%! The NC county with the reputation for "liberal ideas" voted for Bush (I think it was 51%).

Lori, since you know NC so well, see what you can put together on such issues. You should be able to find County by County (if not Precinct by Precinct) vote tallies somewhere on the NC Sec. of State's website.
Look at it, see what you can put together and/or discovery as far as any anomalies go and get back to me by Email with any specifics if you're able to track anything notable down. Hard numbers.

The NC State Board of elections has this posted on their web site:
Straight Party Voting: Votes cast for president, non-partisan offices, and state or local referendum are separate from a straight party vote. For further information, ask your precinct official when you go to vote. http://www.sboe.state.nc.us/index.html
Could this be a problem? Did people not know this? Apparently the SBE thought it may be a problem or why else would they post it?
We would need to compare the number of straight party votes to "blank votes" for president.
For instance: in comparing the counties that voted for Bush with the voter registration for each county.
Alamance voted 61% for Bush but it appears that most of the county is registered Dems. I know that people don't vote across party lines but.....
See this PDF file.
And this from AP.
