Arthur,

Sorry I should have been more complete in my comment. We do use
"counties' much like precincts, I suppose. Each county collects the
ballots centrally and counts them on optical scanners. So maybe
'counties' can be a substitute for precincts? The difference is that
they are so much larger, I'm sure it would throw the math off. But 3 or
4 or our large metro counties in the state account for the vast majority
of the votes.

Best,

Ginny Ross
