2. Sorry. But these maps are VERY misleading.
Edited on Thu Dec-16-10 12:55 PM by Wilms
Not one of these states are implementing audits to provide any significant statistical degree of confidence in the closest of races (ie: the one to most worry about). A few months back I challenged OTOH to prove my contention wrong, asking him to name a single state, and he folded. And he's a guy that knows a thing or two about this stuff.

Now, the NJ law has teeth, but it is, in essence, pending because they're still using paper-less DRE's. MN may be somewhat an exception. Smarter folks may show up to parse that one out.

Sorry to say that VV is papering over the fact that not enough paper is being counted to assure us of correct outcomes in the most serious of cases. And that's just plain wrong.

Feel free to audit this post for accuracy.
