VA 2020 Election Analysis Report (v5)

Adding on to my previous report (old version is here).

  • Fixed a few typos and formatting issues.
  • Added some discussion about the fact that the VA DOE did correct the turnout statistic error I found, but did not make any sort of statement or explanation as to why the error was there in the first place; why did it go undiscovered for nearly a year until I pointed it out; what procedures and policies are in place to make sure errors like this don’t happen again?
  • Added a section documenting the discovery that a small number of public records have been retroactively adjusted and specific entries are now missing from the public archives regarding the registered voter totals.
