16. On paper. That's my understanding.
The audit is based on the margin. NOT a fixed percent who's mileage can vary...and be rather poor in tight margin races, er, the ones for which there would be the most concern. Perhaps search the archive here.

OTOH and Bill Bored are pretty familiar with it. If they're around, I hope they'll weigh in.

And keep in mind New Mexico.
