Takoma Park 2009: the conclusion

Well, it’s been a few weeks of craziness at home and catching up on other work, but I’ve finally wrapped up the Takoma Park 2009 audit. The final step: letting you, dear reader, run the audit all on your own.

You’ll find the complete instructions here on the auditing site.

I haven’t tested this on Windows, just Mac OS X, and it should work on Linux/Unix, too. You need Python 2.5 or above, PyCrypto, git, and subversion. You need about 30 minutes of download time, and 1 hour of processing. And then you can check the results you’ve computed against the results I’ve computed, against the official election results (which have some small variations since the results were certified, I’m not entirely sure why), and against the list of verification codes.
