TOPEKA, Kan. – Scott Schwab, the Secretary of State, declared on Friday that all 105 Kansas counties had completed their post-election audit.
State law mandates post-election audits, which were conducted in Kansas for the first time in 2019 under the Schwab administration.
A post-election audit is performed to confirm that the ballot count and tabulator vote total is identical.
“A post-elections audit is another check and balance to ensure integrity of Kansas election,” said Secretary Schwab. “It gives voters assurance their vote was counted and that election results can be trusted.”
Counties are required to submit the audit results to the Secretary of State’s office for final approval.
