Audits in Primary Elections?
Advertisements [?]
Hey there buddy... got a question for ya. I am wondering if you know if any of the states that have adopted audits are doing it for their primary elections?

We are coming up on a primary election for Governor in here in VT. The SoS is running for governor. We don't have mandatory audits. In the last few elections they have done some limited (lame) audits on the general elections, just at the choice/discretion/whim of the SoS. Now she's running for governor and there are 4 others running against her in the democratic primary. Guess what, she says we don't need any audits in the primary.

Conflict of interest?
Double standard?

yes yes yes yes.

but I'm wondering if other states who have instituted mandatory audits, if they apply to primary elections or only general elections. this information will help me beat the drum here in VT.

any info is appreciated.
