Randomly select precincts in NC counties will be audited Wednesday following municipal elections
State Board of Elections staff will randomly select precincts, early voting sites, and absentee-by-mail ballots to be counted by hand Wednesday as part of a required audit for the municipal elections.
The random selection of two voting groups to be counted by hand in each county will take place at 1 p.m. and any member of the public can access the meeting online or by phone
After the random selection, the county boards of elections will count a contest on all ballots by hand from the chosen precincts, and compare the totals with the results of the machine counts.
State election officials say the sample audit count helps ensure the reliability of election results tabulated by machine.
