The 1994 errata note for 2 respondents who voted in Tennessee in 1994 (for V940617 and V940618, candidate number and party of R's vote in Senate race):

For voters in Tennessee, which had 2 Senate races in 1994, V940617 and V694018 should have been coded according to the respondent's vote in the REGULAR senate election. However, these variables were in fact coded with the respondent's first response, whether or not the first response gave R's vote in the regular or the special Senate election. While in most cases the first response corresponded with vote in the regular Senate election (candidate #13 or #16), in 3 cases the special Senate election vote was erroneously coded (candidate #11a or #12a). In cases 2133 and 2780, the candidate for whom the respondent voted in the special Senate election was erroneously coded and R's vote in the regular Senate election is unknown. For case number 2622, the special Senate election vote is coded, but it is known that the respondent's vote in the regular Senate election was for candidate #13.
