Because every even number has an even digit sum in any odd base.
That doesn't say much in other bases, but in base 3, there's only one
odd digit possible, so that odd digit (1) must occur an even number of
times.

By 'normal' I mean to exclude bases two, four, and eight, where I do not expect a roughly equidistribution of digits. In base three, unexpectedly, I noticed that a count of the digit 'one' (powers > 0) is always an even number. Why?
