But second, I'm confused about the word "vote." Sure, it can function as a count noun (she got two votes) and a mass noun (she got 50% of the vote), but I kept hearing it used as a mass noun in the oddest contexts (these are just the ones I scribbled down; there were lots more):
"He's already got more vote now than in 2008."
"There's still a lot of vote yet to be counted."
"They [a precinct] are not going to count their vote tonight."
"I don't know where Mitt finds the vote to make this up."These are all cases where I would use the count noun. I can't come up with any generalizations about what's going on, but you know, I was up late last night...
