Now we're getting some where! : An Election Verification Exit Poll
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 03:29 PM by kansasblue

To protect the vote count, we must have an independent way to assess the will of the voters. For this reason, the Vote Count Protection Project includes an Election Verification Exit Poll.

In selected precincts, we will interview a representative sample of voters to determine their choices of candidates. The raw data, precinct by precinct, will be publicly posted. This transparency will allow statisticians of every political stripe to perform independent analyses. Note that media-sponsored exit polls, such as the 2004 US Presidential exit poll, do not make their raw data available in this way, and are not Election Verification Exit Polls.

2. Yeah but
Will the tongue-tied Republicans who talk trash, yell lies, scream down Gold Star Mothers or post endlessly on the net suddenly become reticent or tacit all together when exit-polled "who'd you vote for?" :sarcasm:

3. I think we used to do that,. Called a re-count if needed and
you had a set of papers to do it from.
