Maryland State law now requires election officials to manually audit a sample of voted ballots after the General Election. Election Officials will manually tally a sample of votes cast for the office of the Comptroller and will compare the results against the results from the voting system. This process will determine whether the voting system accurately counted ballots during the 2018 General Election.

On Wednesday January 23, 2019 the Garrett County Board of Elections will conduct the manual audit, starting at 9:00 a.m. in the board office conference room located at 2008 Maryland Hwy, Suite 1 Mtn Lake Park.
