46. In other words, none of these audits provide high confidence levels. Correct?
Edited on Tue Aug-17-10 10:10 AM by Wilms
I don't won't to put words in your mouth, but while insisting that I'm moving the goal post, you've not really come out and directly answered.

Answer this question, please: If an anomaly is found in CA, does the audit law...for escalation?

I'm not much interested in an audit that "gives a lot of information" or act as "smoke alarms". Nor should you be citing "ifs", "buts", and "coulds", as you are. I've made it sufficiently clear what I am asking for. The difficulty in answering my question is not my fault. I want a high-level of confidence in election outcomes, particularly (pardon me) when it's a close race. If it doesn't provide that, the audit is..."useless" for the purpose of correcting the outcome.

It's apparent that an audit that doesn't provide for escalation, or the ability to correct the outcome, can provide a high level of confidence that the election result is WRONG. But that's obviously not what I'm interested in.

OTOH it death, if you will. Insult me a few more times, if you like. Insist that asking for high confidence levels in various election situations is "moving the goal post". Tell me how unimportant my posts are compared with people you deem important. The facts remain...there are no audits you've mentioned that will meet that criteria with the possible exception of "one contest" in OH.
