Here’s a list I’ve compiled – mostly focused on software driven elections, but with some choice books covering paper ballot fraud.  I strongly recommend the history books, tho – something all American voters should be required to read if they want to involve themselves in honest election administration.

Robert F. Kennedy. Was the 2004 Election Stolen?  June 1, 2006.  This is an 18,000-word investigative report in Rolling Stones Magazine – based mainly on info we uncovered in Ohio which Harvey, Bob and Richard provided to him.  When this came out, we election investigators in Ohio sang, “On the Cover of the Rolling Stones” and generally celebrated national exposure of our evidence. http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/10432334/was_the_2004_election_stolen
