The Watercooler ~ Election Integrity Project *Correction* [UPDATE]
Number of volunteers exceeded what I reported
It was brought to my attention that there was an error in the Watercooler report on the Election Integrity Project that was published a few days ago.
A volunteer from the EIP in Los Angeles County requested that RedState make note that the actual number of volunteer poll observers in the 2012 election was 2,100. I am waiting to hear back from the volunteer who requested the correction to clear up the confusion.
In the original article, I copy/pasted from their website that there was 469 poll observers from EIP. I wondered about it at the time because at the actual conference where I heard the presentation about the EIP, the speaker stated they deployed 2,100 volunteer poll observers in the 2012 election.
In any event, sorry for the confusion and if any readers would like to assist the EIP in the upcoming elections, I am sure they could use more volunteers. See their website for more information
UPDATE: After speaking with the representative volunteer, she clarified that the reference to 469 poll observers mentioned above and on their website was the number of volunteers, out of a total of 2,100, who reported observing errors at the polls.
The Watercooler is always an open thread.
