2020 Special Primary and General Elections for the 7th Congressional District: Post-Election Ballot Tabulation Audit
Following the 2020 Special Primary Election, held on February 4, 2020, and Special General Election, held on April 28, 2020, for the 7th Congressional District, this office conducted automated post-election ballot tabulation audits. 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.
