UCCountVotes is looking for help

USCountVotes, the organization started by Kathy Dopp (whose analysis of 2004 presidential election data in Florida spawned much discussion), is looking for volunteers, as well as sustaining members, to help support the organization (see their PDF brochure).

Here's what USCountVotes' mission statement says about their goals:
"USCountVotes is a scientific research project whose mission is to objectively investigate the accuracy of elections in America through the creation and analysis of a database containing detailed precinct-level election data for the entire United States."
The group has already published some very thorough statistical analyses of the past election, including Analysis of the 2004 Presidential Election Exit Poll Discrepancies (PDF, which I wrote about here) and Patterns of Exit Poll Discrepancies (PDF).
