31. What about 'em?
Edited on Mon Oct-06-08 09:37 PM by Bill Bored
Either do the audit on election night (warm bodies needed), or chain the custody up as best you can.

I could make the argument that it's hard to get lots of ballots to exactly match lots of precinct counts, esp. if multiple contests are audited and there's some accounting of the ballots, including the unused ones (like counting unused cash that's lying around). But not everyone buys that argument because supposedly it's still possible to get everything to match in time for the audit. I'm not so sure, but I would certainly say the audit should start as soon as possible after the election even if this means the statistical accuracy might be a bit less than the target because some election data is unavailable.
