  1. Allegations have surfaced on the Internet about aparent anomalies between partisan voter registration statistics and the Bush-Kerry vote in certain Florida counties.
  2. Our examination of these allegations is that they do not provide evidence for election fraud; rather they are clearly the result of political changes in Florida -- counties with the greatest apparents disparities are those that are closely aligned with the "Dixiecrat" South.
  3. Other examinations by experts in the field correspond with our conslusion, as they find that the patterns observed in 2004 are not new or unique. This adds weight to our conclusion that the analyses circulating on the Internet claiming to document election fraud in Florida are without merit.
