2020 Presidential Primary and General Elections: Post-Election Ballot Tabulation Audit

Introduction

Following the 2020 Presidential Primary Election, held on June 2, 2020, and following the General Election, held on November 3, 2020, this office conducted automated post-election ballot tabulation audits. Also following the 2020 General Election, each local board conducted a manual post-election ballot tabulation audit. These tabulation audits were conducted in accordance to HB1278 of the 2018 Legislative Session, which was codified into the Election Law Article, §11-309.

The purpose of these audits is to verify and confirm the accuracy of the voting system’s results. A post-election tabulation audit is not a canvass or a recount; it is used to verify that the voting system accurately tallied votes and that the winners of each contest were called correctly.
