Governor still wins, analysis shows

Emily Heffter and Mike Carter of The Seattle Times, with help from Cheryl Phillips, Justin Mayo, Jonathan Martin and Nick Perry, analyzed lists of voters claimed by both Washington political parties to contain the names of felons who voted improperly in the state's gubernatorial election last year. Using a method proposed by Republicans, the paper found that Democrat Christine Gregoire "would still prevail over GOP challenger Dino Rossi." The paper also went beyond the parties, finding that "both parties made mistakes in compiling their lists: Some people on the lists were not felons - nor had they voted." An explanation on how the story was done is also availabe.
