The test examines the frequencies of digits on voting counts and rests on the First (NBL1) and Second Digit Newcomb– Benford Law (NBL2), and in a novel generalization of the law under restrictions of the maximum number of voters per unit (RNBL2).

That is why testing the second digit frequency, although less natural and less powerful than testing the first digit, is of wider applicability.

However, the rationalization covers only the first digit NBL and not the second digit.

Mebane produced simulations from realistic models of electorate behavior which are consistent with the 2nd digit NBL, and also presented different types of frauds that are detected by tests on the 2nd digit NBL (although not all frauds are detected).
Quick Anomaly Detection by the Newcomb--Benford Law, with Applications to Electoral Processes Data from the USA, Puerto Rico and Venezuela
In that respect, when necessary, we proceed in two ways: (1) Check the second digit number Law instead of the first, because the second digit is far less affected, if at all by restrictions on the total; (2) If (1) fails, try the restricted second digit law RNBL with realistic upper bounds; see next section.
