152. What can we learn from the 2002 election data?

How many states in 2002 used electronic voting with verifiable paper trails?

In those states, what was the exit polling showing vs. the actual returns?

In 2008, expect a push from the right trying to do away with exit polling. I still believe the exit polling is valid. I cannot understand why it would fail given a statistically meaningful sample. Our hope for 2008 is that all EVoting systems legislate a requirement for paper audit trails. If we do this, I'll go on record and predict the exit polls once again accurately start predicting election results on Nov 2nd.
