Notice of Risk-Limiting Audit Pilot

11.12.2021

The Brunswick County Board of Elections will conduct a pilot risk-limiting audit (RLA) of the November 2, 2021, municipal election at 9 a.m. November 18 at the Board of Elections office, 75 Stamp Act Drive NE, Building H, Bolivia.

Members of the media and public may attend the meeting to observe the process, but may not participate or otherwise interfere with the pilot audit.

A livestream of the audit will be broadcast using Microsoft Teams.

This is a pilot program in conjunction with the N.C. State Board of Elections. It is being conducted to educate state and county elections officials on the RLA process, with the intent of conducting these audits in future elections. For more on RLAs, please see this press release.

This is not an official County Board of Elections meeting. Some board members may be present but will not conduct business.

The use of video or still cameras by the public inside the audit room is not permitted because of the statutory prohibition on photographing or videotaping individual ballots.

For more information about this meeting, please contact Sara LaVere, Director of the Brunswick County Board of Elections.
