The post-election audit of 2020 Vermont General Election results will occur Wednesday, April 28 at the Pavilion Auditorium in Montpelier, starting at 9am.
“Post-election audits are a best practice that, as per Vermont law, we conduct after every General Election, to verify the accuracy of election results and provide Vermonters with further confidence in the integrity of the election process,” said Secretary of State Jim Condos.
Seven randomly selected voting precincts will be included in this year’s audit: Brandon, Pownal, Randolph, South Burlington (Chittenden 7-4), Topsham, Warren and Worcester. Six of these seven towns use optical scan tabulators for the tabulation of election results, and one town (Topsham) uses hand count procedures.
Every ballot cast in those precincts will be audited, and every race on those ballots will be included in the audit. Following the November 3 election all ballots cast were sealed in ballot bags and held securely by the Town Clerks in their vaults.
The audit will be streamed live, and can be viewed on ORCA Media’s YouTube channel.
