HAND COUNT Audit Completed
On December 1, 2021, Cobb Elections conducted a hand-count audit of 514 ballots cast in the November 30th Marietta Ward 5 Runoff. The audit is not required by law, but was intended as an effort to build public confidence. The Democratic and Republican parties and the two Ward 5 candidates were invited to appoint monitors to observe the counting. Other members of the public and the press were also present. The audit was completed in about 45 minutes and verified that the hand-counted results matched the scanned results from election night.
