I noticed something when I was looking at the election results in Johnson County.

Johnson County reports absentee results as a separate polling location. Johns Edwards withdrew from the race at a point when absentee voting had already started…

Registered Missourians who will not be able to go to their polling place on Election Day may vote absentee beginning six weeks prior to an election.

That’s a ten point difference for two candidates.

I think I might go check the results in other counties.
