2022 Gubernatorial Primary and General Elections: Post-Election Ballot Tabulation Audit
Following the 2022 Gubernatorial Primary Election, held on July 19, 2022, and following the 2022 Gubernatorial General Election, held on November 8, 2022, this office conducted an automated post-election tabulation audit. Additionally, following the 2022 General Election, each local board will conduct a manual post-election tabulation audit. These tabulation audits were conducted in accordance to HB1278 of the 2018 Legislative Session, which was codified into the Election Law Article, §11-309.
The purpose of these audits is to verify and confirm the accuracy of the voting system’s results. A post-election tabulation audit is not a canvass or a recount; it is used to verify that the voting system accurately tallied votes and that the winners of each contest were called correctly.
