2018 General Election: Post-Election Ballot Tabulation Audit
Following the 2018 General Election, this office conducted an automated post-election ballot tabulation audit, while 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.
