FEC vs. National Archives
The popular vote totals given by the FEC, used in this article, are different from the totals listed in the Federal Register, i.e., the totals compiled by the National Archives from each state's Certificate of Ascertainment (see https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/2000/popular_vote.html). These certificates are the official documents that each state by law is required to submit to the National Archives. They list the vote totals for each candidate for the purpose of affirming the membership of the Electoral College and may be signed by the governor. Images are available at the National Archives site. The FEC totals for three states are less than the National Archives' numbers for both Bush and Gore: CT (Bush -10, Gore -644), KY (-28, -25), SC (-955, -476). The FEC totals for four states are more than the National Archives' numbers for both Bush and Gore: MD (Bush +73, Gore +1894), NE (+12, +4), OH (+846, +2562), WV (+2, 0). Overall the FEC has Bush with 60 fewer votes and Gore with 3315 more votes than the National Archives count shows. Note that the FEC table states that it was updated in December 2001. That might have something to do with it. Jeff in CA (talk) 17:11, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
The totals compiled by the National Archives from each state's Certificate of Ascertainment; see https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/2000/popular_vote.html). (note: California submitted an amended Certificate of Ascertainment 12/27/2000, with amended vote totals, which are reflected):
Bush 50,456,062; Gore 50,996,582
The totals compiled by the Federal Election Commission (updated in December 2001); see http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/2000presgeresults.htm:
Bush 50,456,002; Gore 50,999,897
