How many are we, really?

Tuning in to election results a few years back, I suddenly wondered how the radio management ever expected listeners to glean the vote tallies the way the partial results were being spilled out.

I was passing through another New Mexico town at the time, and I tuned in the radio station. The on-duty announcer rattled off something like this:
“Jones now has 113 votes; Smith has 257; Brown has 412; and Martinez has 73.” How much more complicated could the radioman have made this spilling out of the votes so far?
