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
irregularities associated with electronic voting machines
may have awarded 130,000 - 260,000 or more excess votes
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 -- the
probability is less than 0.1 percent. The research team, led 
by Professor Michael Hout, will formally disclose results of the
study at the press conference.
