    I agree with you. The data analysis seemed shaky to me. Particularly as I though most places use machines that create a paper record, so the count can be audited.

    Thanks for mentioning the hot line.

    •  well, here's the thing (0+ / 0-)

      In many cases, jurisdictions use paper, but don't routinely audit the paper and/or have very tight restrictions on partial (expandable) recounts if some of the counts are in dispute.

      So, to be clear, the existence of the paper records isn't necessarily a reason to dismiss an analysis that supposedly gives evidence of fraud. A well-done analysis could reveal real problems (through fraud or otherwise) that then could be corrected. (Not that you said otherwise.)

      But when Choquette and Johnson think they've found fraud in 49 different states, that strains credulity for several reasons, and the wide use of paper is one of them -- in tandem with the apparent lack of incentive. Mightn't he have settled for, oh, 40 or so?
