The Associated Press is reporting that an electronic voting machine in Ohio gave Bush an extra 3,893 votes.

Franklin County’s unofficial results had Bush receiving 4,258 votes to Democrat John Kerry’s 260 votes in a precinct in Gahanna. Records show only 638 voters cast ballots in that precinct.

They haven’t yet reported the vendor or type of voting machines that incorrectly reported these results, and there haven’t yet been other reports of gross miscounts like this one.
