This dossier was provided to us by a credible expert source and was created by a small group of technical experts in the fields of mathematics, political science, and forensic analysis, all who are well-versed in election statistics and electoral anomalies.
The source provided this document and demonstrated the credibility of the authors who are presenting here their statistical findings on the first round of the Brazilian elections (held Sunday October 2nd).
The source groupÂ applied Benfordâ€™s Law, aÂ highly recognized statistical formula, toÂ analyze publicly available dataÂ provided by the Brazilian Electoral Court (TSE). The formula showed inconsistencies in voting tabulation in several regions across the country.
The links to the TSEâ€™s publicly available data is in the document, and other experts are invited to conduct the same Benfordâ€™s Law test on the data. The voting tabulation graphs are also available â€” showing the region, the candidate, and the digit analyzed. Several charts show Benfordâ€™s Law curve in a certain format, while the actual curve of the vote tabulation veers completely off from it. This is what points to manipulation according to the expert source.
