June 6, 2022 - At a resident's request, Cobb Elections conducted a limited scope audit of last month's election. Workers recounted the votes cast for Vinings Cityhood in one precinct to compare the total reported by the ballot scanning equipment to the hand count.

The hand counting was delayed after elections personnel realized they had not brought both bags containing the Vinings04 ballots to Elections HQ. When it was completed, however, the hand count matched the election night numbers exactly.

Elections Director Janine Eveler said that even though the audit was not required, she wanted to provide an example to show results have been counted accurately.  Please watch the video for more.
