44. You're saying two different things.
"You pick precincts that you know you didn't manipulate". Why does the bad guy get to pick the precincts to be audited? That would be thwarted by a random selection.

But you say you aren't happy with random audits. I'm not following.

You do suggest an audit of each precincts. There I do agree, except to say that even that may not be necessary to catch/deter bad guys.

I wanted to post a link about from Howard Stanislevics blog, but the site is done. I encourage you to poke around his site and see what he has to say about auditing.
