60 Districts Selected for Post-Election Audits

Yesterday, with the assistance of Coalition members, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill selected sixty districts from the Republican Presidential Primary for post-election audit <read>

Less than 10% of districts were selected since many towns used paper ballots without optical scanners. The audit only tests the accuracy of optical scanners, ignoring the regularly proven possibility that people can count inaccurately. Since the drawing was held after the official start of the audit period, we expect that many towns will not give the three days notice required in the Secretary of the State’s audit procedures. (In Connecticut audit procedures and likely also regulations are not enforceable.)
