A certain club has 50 people, and 4 members are running for president. Each club member votes for one of the 4 candidates, or can abstain from voting. How many different possible vote totals are there?

By stars and bars, the number of possible vote counts is \(\binom{52}{5} = 2598960\)

I also think you can use stars and bars method but I think the answer is  54C4 = 316251
