More About Provos

Here's some more info about the provisional ballots that could decide this election. CNN's legal beagle Jeffrey Toobin says this about the provos:

"Congress did not say how the states were to decide whether the votes cast by provisional ballot are valid. Some states already had provisional ballot laws, and thousands of those votes have been cast in the past. But states have varied widely in what percentage of provisional ballots ultimately are included in the final totals -- from 10 to 90 percent. If one candidate is behind by fewer votes than the number of outstanding provisional ballots -- and that could happen in at least a few states -- the result of the state's vote probably will not be known for a few days at the earliest."
