Election Accuracy Verified
Election Accuracy Verified

Before certification, the accuracy of the 2022 General Election was verified using several tests and audits.

All ballot scanning and vote tabulation equipment and software was tested after Election Day to ensure the software had not been modified and test ballots were accurately counted. These tests were also conducted before the equipment was used in the election.

More than 52,000 (5.28%) of the 994,227 ballots cast in this election were randomly selected to be hand counted as part of two audits – the One Percent Manual Tally audit and the Risk Limiting Audit. Both audits confirmed that the results of the election were correct. Details on the audits can be found on our website.

Of the 830,162 vote-by-mail ballots counted in this election, 311,325 were cast on Election Day. Of the 157,893 Vote Center ballots counted in this election, 48,595 were cast during the first 10 days of in-person voting and 109,298 were cast on Election Day. Additionally, 6,271 provisional ballots were cast in-person and counted.

The 90 precincts audited in the One Percent Manual Tally this election was more than the 74 precincts audited in the 2018 General Election. This increase can be attributed to the 2022 General Election having more contests (214) and unique ballot styles (543) than the contests (204) and ballot styles (385) during the 2018 General Election. A unique ballot style contains a specific set of contests for which voters in one or more precincts are eligible to vote.
