A Comment on the New Hampshire Recount

I pulled this comment that I felt was well worth sharing from an MLN diary covering a lot of the issues with recounts and the results in New Hampshire:
  • A good audit costs about $.26-$.50 per vote cast

  • An Election costs $3.00+per vote

  • Candidates spend $millions of our money on elections

  • The cost of the wrong candidate being elected can be $trillions and thousands of lives.

  • The value of integrity and confidence in elections: Priceless.

Recounts can be somewhat expensive, though a pittance compared to the overall cost of the elections, but the real value of them can not be measured in dollars and cents.
