Unhacking the Vote / Votesleuth.org

Mike Farb of Unhack the Vote has been tweeting out graphs that purportedly show strange voting anomalies from the 2016 election. His reporting inspired Vote Sleuth,
We had been following @mikefarb1 with great interest on Twitter. He and a crowd-sourced team of crack data analysts have been finding some very interesting peculiarities in precinct-level election statistics from recent elections.

At some point @mikefarb1 posted a link to an article about a statistician’s denied request to audit Kansas voting machines based on some statistically anomalous results she had found when looking at precinct-level election returns vs. precinct size.

This led us to some extremely alarming papers by statisticians who have noticed odd-looking data when they tally precinct-level votes starting with the smallest precincts and moving to the largest.

We found this quite shocking. :snippity: So we decided to investigate this ourselves.
This website is a record of our ongoing work.
I tend to be more skeptical about things I want to believe are true, because I don't like feeling foolish when it turns out I let myself be taken in. Also, I'm not at all qualified to assess these groups' claims about statistical results and their implications. But I would love to read the opinions of everyone more qualified than me to evaluate these analyses/claims. (Slarti? :flirty: )

Well Mr. Farb seems to have gained himself some attention by contributing to a Newsweek article that is quite bad.

http://www.newsweek.com/alt-right-trump ... ter-810355
Newsweek has retracted its story about a conservative botnet effort to force the resignation of Senator Al Franken.

The initial report was based on research conducted by Unhack The Vote, a group examining outside influence in U.S. elections and politics. It alleged that a "decidedly alt-right" botnet "weaponized" anti-Franken stories and amplified pressure on Franken to resign after allegations of sexual misconduct. Newsweek was unable to independently verify their claims after a further review of their work.

Newsweek regrets the error.
