The Summit County Elections Board today (Tuesday) began a state mandated audit of the November 6th election to make sure there were no vote counting machine or computer errors in counting the election ballots.
Elections Director Joe Masich tells AkronNewsNow "The presidential race is audited,as well as a statewide race selected by the Secretary of State's office and then a countywide race is picked out of a hat per say by our board members, and audited as well."
Summit County Elections Director Joe Masich says 14 to 16 of the 298 county precincts are selected at random. He says they don't expect to find any major problems, but its a way to make sure there were no glitches in the initial counting of the ballots.
He says the audit will take several days to complete.
