    • NOTES (3)

      • The events of this episode occur around October 25, 2004

      • Production codes for the 3rd season are different from the previous seasons. The 4 digit number no longer tells you the production order, but is now used to list the airing order of an episode. The number listed before the dash in the code is used to show the order in which the episode was produced.

      • In the Season 3 premiere, Michael Kopsa guest stars as the man who rigs the computerized voting system to favor Greg Stillson in the election. His character's name is never mentioned by anyone in the two-part episode. The name can only be found in the script.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Greg Stillson: "And there's no paper trail?"
        The easily manipulated computer voting system is a commentary on voting systems now being introduced in the United States. In particular, the Diebold voting machines have received a lot of criticism due to their poor security and the fact that they don't leave permanent records. Several discrepencies were found in Diebold systems in California in 2003 and 2004 elections, and as a result the machines have been decertified in most counties.

      • Random Guy: "The digital equivalent of a hanging chad."
        The U.S. presidential election of 2000 was decided by a number of voting discrepencies in Florida, mostly related to punch-card voting. One of these was the infamous "hanging chad" wherein a choice was not punched all the way through. (It also had a relative, the "pregnant chad", where there was just an impression, not a separation of paper.) By deciding whether to count these hanging chads or not, a corrupt vote counter could help determine the outcome of an election.
