Election Protection volunteers needed

This just in from Ray Beckerman:

The Real-Time Data Analysis team of Election Defense Alliance needs some people to download returns from websites as they are posted and send them in to us. We are running an amazing set of mathematical and statistical computer models, using historical, demographic and pre-poll data, as well as precinct and county tallies, independent exit polls, and official returns -- in order to flag suspect patterns and anomolous returns.
If you would like to join us right now in this ground-breaking effort, please respond to me asap. I will send specific instructions. Best if you are comfortable and adept working with online data.
