May Post-Municipal Election Audit Drawing

A few municipalities conduct elections in May rather than November.  We joined Deputy Secretary of the State Scott Bates, Assistant Secretary Peggy Reeves, and SOTS Office Interns for the drawing.  Sadly, due to last year’s reduction in the audit, only one district will be audited.

Here is the official Press Release<read>. We strongly object to the official press release’s characterization of Connecticut’s Post-Election Audit as “Comprehensive”. A comprehensive audit would not exempt ballots from selection for audit, it would audit the totaling of votes, and include compliance audits of all aspects of the election such as checkin lists, voter roles, and ballot security.
