Votes for the 2022 General Election are tallied and an important test to confirm accuracy of the results, known as a risk-limiting audit, will take place Monday, Nov. 21 at 9 a.m.
Bipartisan teams of election judges and party representatives will pull randomly selected paper ballots, then manually enter votes from those ballots into software run by the Secretary of State’s Office. The software then compares the manually entered votes to each county’s cast vote records from the election. If votes match the records of all target contests, the results are confirmed to be accurate with a high level of statistical confidence (the “risk limit”).
The process is open to the public and will be livestreamed on the Clerk and Recorder’s Office Facebook page.
