3. Caveat Emptor
With one exception, the "Manual Audits" employed in the nation will have an extremely low chance of catching an election flipping error. PERIOD. They simply don't call for ENOUGH ballots to be counted in close elections (the time you'd need an audit most :crazy: ).

The one exception is New Jersey, where they have an audit law that has an extremely high chance of finding such error--'cept one thing. NJ uses paperless DRE's. :grr:

Anyone looking solely at Verified Voting's main page would have absolutely no idea that the audits are that useless. And I have absolutely no idea why that is.
