Notice of Sample Audit Selection on Wednesday, October 9

Press Release:

    At 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, October 9, state election officials will randomly select a statistically significant number of precincts, early voting sites, and mail ballots from the October 8 municipal elections to be counted by hand.

    This "hand-eye" audit is required by statute and helps ensure the reliability of election results tabulated by machine.

    The random selection process can be viewed by the public via a webinar hosted here. The State Board of Elections office conducts a number of additional post-election audits and investigations, where necessary, to ensure the integrity of election results.
