democracy?

People shrug, but, what I want to know is, WTF happened to the 5-1/2 million uncounted votes?

Bush: 51% (58,941,293)
Kerry: 48% (55,353,453)
Nader: 0.3% (394,578)

Turnout: 114.3 million counted, 120 million believed to have voted. Approx 60% turnout

I live in Canada and I find myself questioning "democracy" more and more these days!
By the way, I think you Americans need to adopt a parlimentary system of governance. Think about it!
