There's been some conversation today on Mitt Romney not getting a single vote in 59 Philadelphia voting divisions last Tuesday, according to the Inquirer, to which Steve Miskin, the spokesman for the House majority leader, replied "We believe we need to continue ensuring the integrity of the ballot."

In Cleveland there were nine precincts that didn't have a single vote for Romney.

So we paged through Allegheny County's unofficial precinct report for Pittsburgh and found:

-- there were four precincts in the city without a single vote for the GOP presidential candidate, three in the Hill District (5-3, 5-14, 5-18) and one in Arlington/South Side Slopes (16-8), where all totaled Barack Obama ran up a 453 to 0 score over Romney.

-- and there were 13 other precincts where Romney got just one vote, in the Hill and neighborhoods such as Lincoln-Lemington, Larimer, Homewood and Perry North (the wards-precincts were 4-1, 5-15, 5-16, 10-16, 12-2, 12-5, 12-0, 12-14, 13-1, 13-3, 13-9, 13-13, 26-5). There the accumulated score was Obama 2,253-13.

UPDATE: Here's a big ol' list of zero-vote districts elsewhere in the country.
