It will be less the 130M, but that's irrelevant. The real question is what %age of eligible voters actually vote! I believe the Kennedy election set the record.

Keep up the good work. My guesstimate is centered around all 5 million Houstonians casting their vote by Tuesday.

I believe the answer was posted just above yours.

Actual votes + Acorn multiples - GOP Disenfranchisement = Total Votes

I think this one will beat 60 as the trends are heading back up.

My question with this table is the drop in "Voting Population" from 2004 to 2006. That seems odd.

That is an interesting table. I'll have to think about why the voting aged population might be decreasing... It doesn't seem to make sense because the overall population has been increasing, and why would the VA population increase proportionately? Hummm...
