Section 3a: Matching Protocol for National Study

The matching software compared alpha-sorted juror and voter datasets to look for unique name matches. Ideal pairings found one unique match of first, middle, and last name, but there were many other acceptable name matches (e.g., matching first and last names, with a juror having a middle initial matching only one corresponding middle name in the voter dataset). When a juror’s name matched multiple names in the voter database, additional tiebreakers were employed depending on available data (e.g., matching suffixes, such as “Jr.” or “III”, or matching street numbers). Finally, 6 percent of the matched records were manually identified; for these cases, the matching software identified “candidate voter matches” that were visually compared to the juror in question to look for a unique match (e.g., voter “Rebecca Ann Janowitz” matching juror “Becky Ann Janowitz”).
