Audit: 2022 General Election Results at Selected Polling Locations

A hand count of ballots from five percent of all polling places that use optical scan machines will be matched against the machine totals to confirm the integrity of the vote

(HARTFORD, CT) – Today, Secretary of the State Mark Kohler randomly selected 38 voting precincts from the November 8, 2022, general election to have their machine totals audited.

There were also 15 alternate precincts chosen in case the primary chosen precincts cannot be audited for any reason.

“An audit affirming the integrity of the vote post-election is as critical to the process as voting itself,” Secretary Kohler said. “I want to add that I am beyond pleased with the local election officials who worked diligently to ensure the election was managed in a fair, and transparent manner.”

State law mandates that five percent of all voting precincts have their machine totals audited following any election or primary. There were 744 voting precincts used during the election held on Tuesday November 8, 2022. Once the municipalities and corresponding districts are identified by a lottery conducted by the Secretary of the State, the offices on the ballot that will be subject to the audit will also be chosen.

The University of Connecticut, The Secretary of the State’s Office, and the State Elections Enforcement Commission will analyze the audits. They will then be made available to the public.

Connecticut proudly boasts one of the strictest audit statutes in the country and was first the first state in New England to require a comprehensive audit of primary results.
