Ballots Received MIME Decoded Passed Sig Check Passed LDAP Check Votes Tallied Rejects Sent
313 313 270 270 260 53
Acks Created Acks Sent Acks Unsent Bad Ballot Unique Voters
260 258 2 10 257
The difference between "ballots received" and "Passed LDAP check" is
"Rejects sent"; the difference between "Passed LDAP Check" and "Votes
Tallied" is "Bad Ballot".
