Connecticut Polling Places To Be Audited For 2019 Municipal Election

Voters wait in line at a New Haven polling location.

Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill randomly drew names of voting precincts from a lottery machine on Wednesday, revealing the polling places that will be subject to an audit for the 2019 municipal election.

The state will randomly audit 5% of Connecticut’s polling places, or 34 of 671 locales. Ten alternates were selected to replace any locale whose results remain in question.

Merrill said that since the state began using new voting machines in the early 2000s, audits have shown that tabulators have been 99% accurate.

“We’re very proud of that and we’re proud of the fact that Connecticut does this audit drawing every year,” Merrill said. “It really serves to give the citizens of the state confidence that their votes are being accurately counted.”

Merrill said that for the first time, town officials can go to her office in Hartford to have their ballots counted electronically for the audit.

Those picked were asked to begin 15 days from Nov. 20. They have until the middle of December to submit results.
