Boulder County's Primary Election Audit Open to Public

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Boulder County – The public is invited to observe Boulder County’s audit for the 2014 Primary Election beginning Friday at 2 p.m. The audit is a post-election quality assurance test that ensures the accuracy of the machine tally of votes.

Boulder County’s audit uses randomly selected ballots from all scanning systems and compares a manual tally of votes with the actual election-night machine tally of the same ballots. Any discrepancy is investigated. A final report is issued to the Boulder County Canvass Board for verification before the election is certified.

Members of the public can observe the audit process at the Boulder County Ballot Processing Center, 1750 33rd Street in Boulder (check in on 2nd floor at the Elections Division). Contests and ballot batches will be randomly selected from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday. Ballots will be manually tallied and compared with machines tallies beginning Monday at 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and continue through Thursday or until the audit is finished.

Complete audit details and data will be available at on Monday, July 7.
