The Times post-runoff election news contained one front-page statement that must be corrected. Your report stated that 49.8 of Georgia's Republicans voted against Nathan Deal. There is no basis in fact for such an illogical conclusion to be drawn.

I have voted in hundreds of elections for nearly 40 years, and have yet to be given a ballot that allows me to vote against any candidate. As a regular subscriber and reader of The Times, I urge you to attend to more careful writing of the news.
