1)  What were the actual vote tallies for the candidates?
2)  How do I, as a voter, know that my vote was counted?
3)  Can you please tell us what measures were taken to preserve the integrity of the vote--e.g., who counted it, under what circumstances, how many ballots were rejected for various reasons, and how was the count validated?

There's no information on SPAH's site that describes any of the above, and I'd like to know. Anyone who's been involved in counting votes for any election knows that transparency in the process matters.

Thanks, Richard Hunter
