Since you seemed to imply modules were OK, here's my 2nd attempt:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CNN::GetFloridaVotesAndEmailChanges qw{doit}; doit;
Weighs in at about 87 bytes. Less if you reduce the length of the module's name and the function names, and if you drop the dependency on 'use strict'. Heck, if I do that:
perl -MCNN -e go
16 bytes!

Update: Since amelinda gets to use external programs in her version, I do too:

perl -e '`./a.out`'
Unfortunately, we're a few bytes longer than the previous example, but if you renamed our external program a.out to, say, a, we come in at 15 bytes (13 if you assume our external program is in your PATH, which means we can drop the ./).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
