Gov. Chris Sununu has signed a bill that authorizes a forensic audit for the voting results in the town of Windham, New Hampshire. The AP reports:
CONCORD, N.H. — Gov. Chris Sununu has signed a bill authorizing an audit of how votes were counted in Windham last fall.
After eight candidates competed for the town’s four House seats in November, a recount showed four of them each receiving an additional 300 votes, three others receiving smaller increases and the candidate who requested the recount losing 99 votes.
Sununu on Monday signed a bill authorizing an audit of the town’s ballot counting machines and hand tabulations.
“New Hampshire elections are safe, secure, and reliable,” he said in a statement. “Out of the hundreds of thousands of ballots cast this last year, we saw only very minor, isolated issues — which is proof our system works. This bill will help us audit an isolated incident in Windham and keep the integrity of our system intact.”
