NH primary vote counts different in towns of all sizes

This shows all the cities/towns sorted in decreasing size, and a sliding window average of the hand count vs. Diebold count. My graph shows that for all town sizes, there is a bias toward Hilary in the Diebold machine count. However, my graph also shows a sliding window average of the standard deviations… and the difference between the hand and Diebold counts is well under the standard deviation of the results. If I knew more stats I could calculate a t-test or p-value of the significance of the difference, and I bet it is not statistically significant, but it sure looks curious.
