After the March 3 primary election, the State Board will randomly select precincts, early voting sites and by-mail ballots to be counted by hand in every county.

The sample audit count is required by statute
and helps ensure the reliability of election results tabulated by a machine. The audit is a comparison of the machine counts with hand-to-eye counts completed as a test to ensure voting equipment read the voter's choices accurately.
The State Board of Elections office conducts a series of additional post-election audits and investigations, where necessary, to ensure the integrity of election results.
