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