(PRWEB) January 17, 2007 -- The National Election Data Archive (NEDA) has 
released a short paper explaining a new formula developed by Ronald Rivest 
of MIT to estimate the minimum audit amounts that are mathematically 
sufficient to detect vote count errors that could seat wrong candidates. 
NEDA's paper and an easy-to-use spreadsheet to allow any layman to 
calculate how many vote counts to audit for a particular election contest, 
can be found at ElectionArchive.org.
