Wisconsin needs a statute to require audits.
In 2003, Wisconsin passed legislation to conform to HAVA. This mentioned audits to verify the accuracy of the voting machines. After the November 2006 election, Wisconsin ran a crippled audit that was not intended to affect the contests. The election results were certified long before the audit report was issued in April 2007
Final complete audit procedure, which quotes the statute 7.08(6) that triggered the audit.
This audit only covers November elections. We need audits of vote counts for all of Wisconsin's elections. Future audits must be completed before certification of the results. We need legislative action to mandate this. See September 19, 2006 letter in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
