Do Statistics play a direct role in the OVC architecture ?
Is there a place for a audit flag, or counting a sample ?

UC Berkeley Study Questions Florida E-Vote Count
Thursday November 18, 1:23 am ET  
Research Team Calls for Immediate Investigation 
BERKELEY, Calif., Nov. 18 PRNewswire -- 
 When:   Thursday, November 18, 2004, 10:00 a.m. PST
 What:  A research team at UC Berkeley will report that
        <b>irregularities associated with electronic voting machines
        may have awarded 130,000 - 260,000 or more excess votes</b>
     to President George W. Bush in Florida in the 2004 presidential
     election. The study shows an unexplained discrepancy between votes
     for President Bush in counties where electronic voting machines
     were used versus counties using traditional voting methods.
     Discrepancies this large or larger rarely arise by chance -- <b>the
     probability is less than 0.1 percent</b>. The research team, led 
     by Professor Michael Hout, will formally disclose results of the
     study at the press conference.
