22. California? Don't they have a 1% statewide audit?
That's actually not so bad for a statewide election because it's a HUGE state. So how would that audit compare in terms of effectiveness to the number of exit polled precincts in the state?

It would have to be close to 250 hand counted precincts right?

So how many precincts did they exit poll?

And how many voters did they interview, and how many voter-verified paper records were counted in the 1% audit, and what kind of errors or miscounts did they find?

(Of course, the audit procedures may not have been perfect, but then neither are the exit polls.)
