The Miami Herald undertook a $900,000 project to recount the ballots cast in the 2000 federal election. The Herald reviewed "undervotes" cast in all 67 Florida counties. Later the Herald undertook a study of the "overvotes." "Taken together, these projects... illuminated a dark moment of American politics and fulfilled any newspaper's most central purpose: recognize and shoulder the responsibility to gather and publish crucial information, regardless of the cost in time, effort and resources," the Herald's letter to the IRE judges reads.
