According to our http://USCountVotes.org statistics discussion list, there
are flaws in the Berkeley study, just like there are flaws in our original
analyses of op-scan vs. touchscreen counties. Analyses must get down to
the precinct level to really discover anything.

I'm asking the Berkeley group to join our group of statisticians.

I'm having trouble finding a home for our data for analyzing the 2004
election, because we'll need more disk space than a typical commercial
service allows, and do not have funds yet for a full-time sysadmin to use
a colocated server. I'm sure we'll find a data home (I've received
responses of help from the Utah Linux users group, so perhaps...), but
just hasn't happened yet.

We've got people in many states collecting data for us, and it's going to
be a big project getting data originating in all different formats from
the individual counties input.

Suggestions?
