This hardly makes or breaks an election, but the vote count total for the Stack Overflow election appears to be off. On the election page, it says (emphasis mine):
72,908 voters were eligible, 45,177 visited the site during the election, 17,866 visited the election page, and 5,004 voted
But the election ballot file only contains 4,994 ballots: OpenSTV only reads 4,994 ballots, and there are only 4,994 ballot lines.
Why is this?
Apparently this was silently fixed. Yay! Would still like to understand what happened, though.
