  • . For instance, a text message of“PC01506 ST1 B4 C23 D2 E24 F1 G2 J1 R12 S3 T1 T100 U100” would have indicated the following about fictitious polling center 01506: “The polling station innovationsopened on time. There was not sufficient indelible ink for marking voters. Voters not appearing on the voter list were permitted to vote. Voters with no ID card and no additional information were permitted to vote. Voters fingers were not properly marked with indelible ink to deter dou- blevoting.Officials did not provide for secrecy ofthe ballot. Officials appeared to be biased. There were no campaign materials in the polling station or within 400 yards of the polling station, as required. The polling station was somewhat overcrowded but officials maintained order. There was sufficient security presence at the polling station. Both the APC and SLPP party agents refused to sign the protocol, suggesting that neither agreed with the count. Ballots were counted in an orderly manner but officials improperly rejected votes that should have been counted. APC candidate Ernest Koroma and SLPP candidate Solomon Berewa each received 100 votes. ”Polling center 01506 was not a real polling station,and few ofthe polling centers visited by NEW had this many problems. This hypothetical is meant to show the range of information that can be cap tured in a single message. Ian Schuler
