Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I just signed up, too and I've been corresponding with mr. continuation guy via reddit.

I just wanted to alert you to ANOTHER factor (other than social-economic data) which is probably the main reason why some townships have Diebold machines and other do not: their location in the state.

Here is a graph showing where the machines are used:

And, here is a blog post I made to discuss the results:

Basically, it kind of looks like there is no fraud, since the machine usage is so biased in terms of location.  BUT, if you only look at townships with 500-800 democrat votes, their usage of machines is close to even split with the hand-counters, AND their distribution in the state is more random.

So, I think we should somehow encourage the NH SOS to only do recounts for these medium sized towns, since the bias still exists, and there are not as many votes to count so it would be a lot cheaper.
