tabulation error in 1 precinct in Faulkner County fixed.

given the number of votes shown for other contests in this precinct and how high Obamas "official" vote total is in this precinct, its quite clear that the precinct added an extra digit to his vote total by mistake turning 92 votes to 925 votes, and 833 votes have been deducted from Obama both statewide and in the County to correct for this error.
