2012 results not yet complete[edit]

Obama is clearly the winner, however, the vote count is "TBC" because additional votes, such as absentee and provisional votes, will continue to be counted and reported for about 10 days after 11/6.

Counting completed, results are in the table now. Cmckain14 (talk) 22:21, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

1960 Election[edit]

The entry for Kennedy should have him receiving less votes than Nixon, because you have to exclude votes in Alabama for a Democratic slate of electors that was specifically anti-Kennedy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.228.65.99 (talk) 22:47, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

This is just plain wrong. Nominate for removal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.176.133.24 (talk) 03:56, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Inconsistent with individual election pages[edit]

A number of the figures in this table are inconsistent with those shown in the election's page. For example, see United States presidential election, 1880 --Nick2253 (talk) 20:36, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

This is highly deceptive article.

The electoral college votes for the winner of the popular vote. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.130.84.37 (talk) 22:16, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

The entire population of the country at time of election would be an interesting addition to this graph.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.39.232.12 (talk) 12:12, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
