Updated November 2011 Election Results

After I manually scanned through all ballot images to search for and make any corrections to the TEVS results, I located 35 vote targets whose software interpretations needed correction. Mostly, these were due to extremely light check marks. The scan of the 12,000 images, with votes overlaid on them by the software, went at about 90 to 100 images per minute, or 90 to 100 ballots per minute, since these were single sided ballots.

Having made those corrections, my independent results off of the Transparency Project's images match the county's Final Unofficial Results exactly except for the following:

Dave Saunderson 1559 versus county report of 1557
Emil Fierabend 441 versus county report of 442
John W Corbett 1377 versus county report of 1376
Joe O'Hara 104 versus county report of 102
Judy Gower 162 versus county report of 164
Mike Seeber 55 versus county report of 54
Susan Johnson 3104 versus county report of 3103
Zachary Thoma 16 versus county report of 17

As my interpretation of votes may not have followed the official rules, it is very reasonable to assume that the errors are in the independent count. None of the discrepancies would change any results.

The only reason I am not calling this "entry" final is that we may have an opportunity to do multiple-person recounting of the races with discrepancies.
