Post-election audits authorized by 26 O.S. § 3-130 will be conducted on Thursday, July 28.

County election board secretaries in thirty-three (33) counties will conduct a manual audit of ballots pursuant to the procedures established by the Secretary of the State Election Board. Thirty-six (36) different races are included in the audit. Audits are open to the public. Start times vary from county to county, but will begin between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Please contact your County Election Board for more details.

State law defines post-election audits as a "manual or electronic examination of a limited number of ballots” “for the purpose of maintaining the security of the election system by ensuring that voting devices and software used in a particular election correctly tabulated votes." Audit results cannot be used to change or alter certified election results.

An audit report will be posted on the State Election Board website following the audit.

Information, including a list of counties, ballot types, and races being audited, can be found on the State Election Board website.
