## Verifying Elections Using Risk-Limiting Auditing

Interesting article on using risk-limiting auditing in determining if an election’s results are likely to be valid. The risk, in this case, is in the chance of a false negative, and the election being deemed valid. The risk level determines the extent of the audit.

That’s very interesting and with both politicians and the electorate both very familiar with the details of statistical sampling and inference I’m sure it will be widely accepted and adopted.
