Board of Election News and Information:

The Carroll County Board of Elections will manually tally a sample of votes cast for the Office of the Comptroller and compare the results of the manual tally against the results from the voting system. This process will determine whether the voting system accurately counted ballots during the 2018 General Election.[2]

The State Board of Elections randomly selected the early voting center and precinct to be audited, and the Carroll County County Board of Elections randomly selected the absentee and provisional ballots to be audited. Starting on January 14, 2019, the Carroll County Board of Elections will manually tally the votes for Comptroller on:

  1. 730 ballots cast on one scanning unit on the 1st day of early voting at the Westminster Senior Activities Center
  2. 1,370 ballots cast on election day at the 05003 Oklahoma Road Middle School
  3. 15 absentee ballots
  4. 25 provisional ballots

[1] See Election Law Article, §11-309 of the Annotated Code of Maryland. This requirement introduced as House Bill 1278 of the 2018 Legislative Session and is reported as Chapter 523 of the 2018 Laws of Maryland.
[2] Before the 2018 General Election was certified, the State Board of Elections conducted an automated audit of all of the ballots cast in the 2018 General Election. The results of this audit confirmed the accuracy of the voting system. The results of the automated audit are at https://elections.maryland.gov/voting_system/ballot_audit_plan.html

We recently completed, in partnership with The State Board of Elections and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), poster showing how we protect the election process, systems and data. We hope that this information is useful and assures you that Maryland and Carroll County’s election officials are serious about protecting our election systems and data and voters can be confident about the integrity of the election process.
