26. we burned hours haggling over that wording
By "finalizing official election results," we mean that all recourse to correct the winner has expired.

I don't know whether or not that is the case in Vermont at the time that the canvass report you linked to is created. In New Mexico, recounts come after the canvass, so while the canvass is in some sense official, it isn't finalized.

We agree that the audit has to come in time to correct who wins, if it needs to be corrected. It's also important for the audit not to come 'too soon.'
