Ballot Audit and Review

On Wednesday, April 1, the Department will post a a prototype of a new application that allows the public to sort the ballot images according to precinct, contest, and district.  The Department is the first county in the country to utilize this application, known as “Ballot Audit and Review.”  

The City’s voting system vendor, Dominion Voting Systems, will continue development of this application and the Department will also post these updated versions on its website for future elections.  Dominion expects next versions of the Ballot Audit and Review program will allow the sorting of ballot images according to specific candidates and vote markings.
