##### Possible Answers

- The low p-value indicates that if in fact there
*was*election fraud in Iowa, there would be a very small probability of observing this data or more extreme. - Because the observed statistic is far into the tails of the null distribution, this indicates that your data is inconsistent with the null hypothesis that Benford's Law applies to vote totals in Iowa.
- The high p-value indicates a high probability that that our null hypothesis (that Benford's Law applies to vote totals in Iowa) is true.
