28. turns out the former LA County Registrar, Conny McCormack was NOT selecting precincts randomly
Edited on Mon Oct-06-08 08:30 PM by diva77
have to watch everything like a hawk (that is, whatever is possible to watch)

in my opinion, it is too easy to rig audits; you would have to watch auditors like a hawk and the rigging is easier for an audit than for counting all of the ballots. The sort and stack method of HCPB which incorporates a 100% audit (ie people doing the counting double check each other), and is conducted at the precinct level on election night, is by far the most transparent, cost effective, verifiable way to get the actual results.

Unless the current registrar is observed choosing random precincts, we won't know whether the choices are actually random. And then there are more ballot security breaches possible above and beyond that.
