19. that isn't "what the experts all say" at all
You just might be the only person ever to say that. I'm not sure. But it takes some mad skilled chutzpah to try to pass it off as an expert consensus.

Sometimes 10% would be far larger than necessary to provide very strong evidence of who won; sometimes it isn't nearly large enough. That's pretty obvious, even to the experts.

But as to your question: election officials don't always do a 10% audit because most of them aren't looking for more work to do. No mystery there.
