In an unscientific poll conducted by our own
from July 30- August 16, the presidential race in November looks to be one of the closest in history. After compiling the
member votes, no candidate secured enough electoral votes to declare a win, this one would have to be decided by a vote in the House of
Representatives, with each state having one vote and the winner of this vote would be declared President.

Electoral College Results
Bush = 202
Kerry = 200
Badnarik = 63
Nader = 0
Unclaimed = 69
No one wins a majority of the electoral votes (270), so it would go to the House of Representatives. Each State would get one vote, and whoever has a
majority of the states, wins.

Good work by a fellow ATSer, who added that there is a possibility another poll will be conducted in September. With this election shaping up to be
one the closest in history, make sure that if/when the next poll is conducted, you get your vote tallied.
