Today proved to be the toughest fought presidential campaigns in the history of the United States
However, Bush still needs to wait for the final resolution of voting dispute before being reelected. This time, the argument is in Ohio where challenger Sen. John Kerry claims enough provisional ballots cast Tuesday remain to be counted to give him a chance to win in the state and, with it, the presidency, informs DetNews.com According to News 24 Houston, the nation will have to wait one more day to find out who the next president of the United States will be. It could be a week and a half before there's any official word on who claimed Ohio. As of now, President Bush is leading John Kerry by about 135,000 votes in the Buckeye State. The only way Kerry can overcome this margin is to rely on uncounted ballots. There are two such ballots. The first are absentee votes that, because of heavy voting, have yet to be completely tabulated. The second are provisional ballots. These are the ones cast by voters whose names didn't show up on regular poll lists. There are at least 135,000 of these, and Ohio election officials say that number could reach 175,000. In Ohio, with nearly all the votes counted, Bush led 51 to 49 percent with a margin of 140,000 votes. Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell (R) estimated that there will be 175,000 provisional ballots by the time the counties finish their tabulations. Democrats said there could be as many as 250,000, informs The Washington Post.
