The next step in ensuring that the electronic count shows who really won is to manually review some of the paper ballots through an audit. But the recently proposed post-election "audit" falls short; it will not look at the marked paper ballots. Instead, Clear Ballots' "ClearAudit" software assumes the state's voting system scanned every ballot perfectly, and uses that information in its review. But no system is perfect; mistakes happen, equipment malfunctions. And some people want to make it look like the rightful winner lost.
