What can you tell me about plans to analyze data from this year's
general election, especially to detect possible fraud?
I might be able to help with such an effort. I have NOT done
much with election data, but I have developed tools for data analysis,
including web scraping, and included them in R packages available on the
Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) and GitHub.
Penny Abernathy, who holds the Knight Chair in Journalism and
Digital Media Economics at UNC-Chapel Hill, told me that the electoral
fraud that disqualified the official winner from NC-09 to the US House
in 2018 was detected by a college prof, who accessed the data two weeks
after the election.
