American Statistical Association Speaks in Favor of Manual Audits & Recounts

The American Statistical Association released a paper on October 26, 2006 "Statistical Issues in Elections"

http://www.amstat.org/news/StatisticalIssuesInElections.pdf

in which it states that:

"Only real recounts (cross-checking paper records against official tabulations), not just rereading machine totals, will resolve close elections."

This position of the American Statistical Association is in stark contrast to many U.S. state recount policies, including Utah's new recount policies that merely reread machine totals, along with a statistically insufficient audit, even in cases where margins between candidates are less than 1%!

For more about Utah's new audit and recount policies see http://utahcountvotes.org/ltgov/ElectionXPolicy.pdf and http://utahcountvotes.org/ltgov/Response2LtGov-Audit-Recount.pdf
