New Jersey votes still being tallied after Kerry concession

(11/03/04) BRUNSWICK Despite an election victory by President George Bush, thousands of votes are still being counted throughout New Jersey and the rest of the U.S.

Voters who ran into problems at the polls, such as missing or expired registrations, filled out something called provisional ballots. These ballots are currently under review and must be counted within 10 days after the election. Although the documents are being counted, their addition to the final tally is not likely to change the overall election results.

All states were required to use provisional ballots for the first time during the 2004 election. They will only count if the people casting them are registered to vote. The law requires all voters using provisional ballots to be told if their vote counted.
