Election Results to be Audited from Selected Polling Locations

A manual count of ballots from five percent of all polling places to be matched against machine totalsĀ 

HARTFORD – Secretary of the State Denise Merrill randomly select voting precincts to have results audited following the September 10 primary election. Five percent of polling places are subject to the audit, as prescribed by Connecticut General Statutes 9-320f. Those manually counted ballots will be matched against vote totals from optical scan machines.

“Auditing election results is one of the strongest protections we have in place to ensure that the results of Connecticut’s elections accurately reflect the votes cast in that election,” said Merrill. “Our top priority is to make sure that every Connecticut voter knows that our elections are secure. Our highest priority remains conducting free and fair elections that count every vote.”
