An audit plan (or trinomial audit plan).
Theoretically, auditors will use the plan and go out and generate
actual audit data. (You can fake it with simulations–see
make.truth.) The audit data should be stored in a new data
frame with new vote totals, or overstatements, for the candidates in
the audited precincts. To convert from totals to overstatements, use
audit.totals.to.OS. You can store that in a elec.data
object under “audit”, or keep it seperate.
