Some researchers at the University of California Berkeley have theorised, using statistics and publicly available election data, that President Bush may have got 130000 or more votes in Florida than he was entitled to, due to "irregularites associated with electronic voting machines". Bush won Florida by 350000 votes, so it would not have changed the outcome but the researchers suggest there is a need to examine currently depolyed evoting systems with a view to improving them.
