By way of comparison, I have been a poll worker for many years in
California, and my mother has in Florida, and we have NEVER seen a case in
our precincts when the ballot counts do not match the roster counts. (Of
course we make it a high priority to keep track of every ballot and voter.)
Personally I think it is more likely, when the roster count is larger than
the ballot count, that a poll worker has crossed off extra names on the
roster than that a voter walks away with a ballot.
