Hey, I apologize for sending this idea around a 3rd time (I promise it
will be the last if no one bites), but ...

QUESTION: After next Tuesday, I want to see a statistical study (even if
I have to figure out how to do it myself) by county in swing states like
Florida and Ohio, that have different voting systems in different
counties, to compare election results in counties using paperless DREs
with election results in counties using other voting machines to examine
if there is any statistical increased evidence/likelihood of election
rigging/hacking/unexpected-errors with paperless DREs.

This could be done with a list of counties' respective numbers

* type of voting machine,
* November election results,
* poll results leading up to the election, and
* surveys of relative numbers of democrats/republicans, or prior election
results in each county.

Is anyone planning such a study that you know of?


Do any of you know where/how to get a hold of all the necessary info so I
can try to do one (I've forgotten most of my statistics, but can probably
get help from a math prof or two I know.
