Are the 2008 Election Swing States Susceptible to
Outcome-determinative Vote Fraud?

including with both Obama's and McCain's presidential campaign offices

Please urge your U.S. Senator to vote "NO" on Senate bill 3212. This
partial list of flaws in the new Bennett/Feinstein election reform
bill S.3212 can be shared with your US Senator who
may be voting on it soon.

The Bennett/Feinstein Bill S.3212 – Worse than No Election Reform

Please forward this information. Thank you.


The 2008 presidential election swing states predominately use computer
voting and tallying. The only reliable way to check if these computer
counts actually reflect votes cast is to do post-election hand counts
of secured voter-verified paper ballot records. Florida recently had
a loss of over 100,000 computer votes and there have been numerous
incidents where computers switched votes between candidates; this
could be accidental malfunction or malicious. Not even the best
experts can find information when it is not on computer memory -
either erased or modified intentionally.

Twelve (12) out of thirteen (13) of the swing states are susceptible
to undetected outcome-altering vote miscount because the election
results are not subjected to independent post-election auditing that
checks the accuracy of machine counts. Without routine measures to
detect and correct errors, any system can be assumed to be inaccurate.
Only three (3) swing states, NM, MO, and CO audit election results
prior to certification, and two of these states, MO and CO, do
insufficient or invalid, internal audits. Election laws and
procedures and public accessibility to election records and data vary
by state.

How susceptible are the swing states to vote fraud?

See this analysis:

Without adequate independent audits , the only way to detect
suspicious election results consistent with vote miscount would be for
mathematicians, statisticians, and computer scientists with expertise
in voting systems to work with attorneys and local election integrity
activists to obtain election records and election data in each State
immediately after the election. Then the statisticians,
mathematicians, and independent voting system experts could look for
patterns and evidence consistent with vote miscount. This
collaborative work needs to be done prior to making any decision to
concede any election outcome

About The National Election Archive:
The National Election Data Archive has been organized for educational
and scientific purposes of promoting fair and accurate elections by
promoting public access to election records and data; and developing
technology and mathematical methods to detect any voter
disenfranchisement or vote count inaccuracy. Such methods include
independent manual vote count audits, exit poll discrepancy analysis,
and the public release and scientific analysis of election data along
with reconciliation of all printed ballots and public release of
election records necessary to verify the integrity of the data. NEDA
is a completely non-profit organization that relies on the donation of
time by its volunteers, many of whom are mathematicians or
statisticians who donate their time and expertise because of their
dedication to vote count integrity and public service. The project
needs donations from the public and we truly appreciate the generosity
from citizens who are concerned about fair and free elections in
America. All donations are tax deductible. To make a donation or
