“Election audits” remain in the news, as many citizens are convinced that the various statistical analyses completed, testimonies given, affidavits filed, and reports made, point to unexplainable “irregularities” warranting further investigation. On the other hand, Democrats and their media allies claim that the 2020 election was “completely secure” and that further investigation into the irregularities is a complete waste of time because the results were certified by the states months ago. The only way to sort out the truth is to complete audits in enough states, counties, and precincts to definitively prove the presence or absence of election fraud in 2020.

Let’s start with the “certification” part. All state certification of election results means is that state legislators rubber-stamp the election numbers given to them. There is no investigation into any voter irregularities, no investigation into machine algorithms, and no investigation into any process deficiencies. None.

But what does “audit” mean? It turns out that there are many types of audits, and most people are unaware of the differences. Thankfully, a team led by physicist and Mensa John Droz, Jr., has just completed a report that explains the different types of audits and which should be conducted, and why audits should be routinely performed after all elections. The 14-page report is entitled Post-Election Audits: Verifying Election Integrity and may be found here.

Droz’s team uses an IRS analogy to explain the need for conducting a “real election audit”:

1 – An Automatic audit is what the IRS computer does to all tax form submissions. Essentially it is a Match & Math audit. In other words, the IRS: a) matches what third par-es submit for you [e.g. what your bank sent the IRS about how much interest you earned] to what is on your tax forms, and b) makes sure that everything on your tax forms adds up correctly.

This type of “audit” is comparable to what an Election Recount is.

2 – A Correspondence audit is a small step up. Here the IRS sends you a le=er asking for you to verify the amount on a particular tax form line item
