Jefferson County Board of Elections Hold Post Election Audit

Posted: Updated:

Jefferson County Board of Election members gathered Thursday morning to hold a post-election audit which was expected to last for hours.

The purpose of the audit is to make sure everything adds up correctly.

Members hand counted all of the paper tapes and optical scan ballots and compared them to official results.

They must count five percent of the total ballots cast, which Director Diane Gribble said came to around 1800 ballots.
