42. Wanting to know the confidence level of various elections isn't moving the "goal post".
And I'm not here to get into a pissing match, which that term alone suggests.

I want to know what elections I can have a high level of confidence in.

"From "statewide" to "non-statewide" to "close."". Exactly. I WANT TO KNOW WHO WON. Not unreasonable on it's face particularly with respect to discussing audits. Don't call that sloppy.

If you want to talk about it, I'd like that very much. And I'm not talking theoretical, I mean practically. So we need to know, for example, which states audits don't call for escalations so we know which ones might catch a problem but not necessarily put you in a place where you can do anything about it. Is that not right?

So in the California example, we might be ok for state-wide, but not congressional on down. Correct?

Are there any other states that would perform similarly?
