For our Oct. 15 cover story, “The Fact Wars,” we asked readers to cast their ballot for which candidate they thought was telling the truth. Votes arrived on TIME.com, on all our tablet platforms and, of course, through the good ol’ U.S. Postal Service.
Here are the results: We received tens of thousands of votes in our instant tablet polls (iPad, Nook, Galaxy and Kindle) and on TIME.com. And to our delight, readers across the country literally tore off the cover and mailed their choice to us. The paper ballots came from 27 states, including one from Hawaii (which, to no surprise, was for Obama). Overall, our very unscientific poll saw Obama with 76% of the truth vote. But don’t fret, Romney supporters: in the crucial battleground state of Ohio, he received 75% of the mailed votes. Now it’s on to the more scientific poll on Nov. 6.
