7. AFAIK the best resource for this kind of question
is Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota's State Audit Legislation Reference Guide. Unfortunately it doesn't clearly distinguish which states' audits apply in primaries -- but it links to applicable state laws, so it usually isn't too hard to figure out.

I don't know just how many states audit primaries, but I know that Connecticut's audit applies to primaries (as does NY's, as Bill Bored already mentioned). New Mexico's definitely doesn't. California's 1% manual tally applies to all elections in which voting machines are used. In Ohio, Jennifer Brunner made a similar decision not to audit the primary in which she was running for the Senate nomination (she lost). (Ohio has no audit law; I think there's a court order that requires some sort of auditing in major general elections.)
