I count two surplus votes in the source[edit]

The math is simple: 3 × 54 -51 -45 -43 -13 -4 -4×1 = 2. I guess they messed up a bit. -- 20:22, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

The result is perfectly plausible without there being an error. It just means that two states voted for only two states, rather than three. If fifty-two states voted for three and two for two, you wind up with fifty-four ballot papers and 160 votes cast. Sir Sputnik (talk) 20:32, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
