STATEHOUSE (Feb. 25, 2019) – A bill authored by State Sen. Victoria Spartz (R-Noblesville) that would allow for the creation of election audit procedures recently passed the Senate unanimously.
Senate Bill 405 would allow the secretary of state to develop risk-based audit procedures for post-election and procedural audits.
“Hoosiers should have confidence in Indiana’s election process,” Spartz said. “Faith in the election process is an important element of a democratic society.”
Thirty-four states and the District of Columbia currently have post-election audits, and three states have a statutory requirement for a risk-limiting audit, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
SB 405 will now move to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
