2018 General Election Audit and Canvass


The public is invited to observe the Boulder County Election Division’s 2018 General Election risk-limiting audit (RLA) beginning on Saturday, November 17 along with other post-election certification activities, as detailed below.

  • What: Boulder County Risk-Limiting Audit
  • When: Saturday, November 17 (see detailed schedule below)
  • Where: 1750 33rd Street, Boulder, Ballot Processing Center
  • Who: Open to public

The risk-limiting audit is a test that helps ensure the accuracy of election results and provides the public with evidence that election outcomes reflect the votes cast by voters on their ballots. To ensure tabulation was accurate, the process reviews how a ballot’s votes were captured at the time it was processed by comparing a sample of paper ballots with digital tallies. To learn more about risk-limiting audits, see the Secretary of State’s fact sheet on the RLA.

At the Boulder County Ballot Processing Center, members of the public can observe the risk-limiting audit process alongside the canvass and audit board members (the canvass board is the group of individuals who certify the election after reviewing a detailed reconciliation report on the election). Here is the schedule of activities. All activities are open to the public:

Date Time Activity
Nov. 17 – Saturday 8:30-9 a.m. Canvass Kick-Off Meeting
Nov. 17 – Saturday 9-11:30 a.m. Audit Board Members arrive; Ballot pull for Risk Limiting Audit begins
Nov. 17 – Saturday 12 p.m. - until finished Risk Limiting Audit
Nov. 27 – Tuesday 1:30-3:30 p.m. Canvass Board Meeting (final information review and signoff/certification of election)

Complete risk-limiting audit details and data will be available at on the Secretary of State’s Audit Center after the audit is complete.

The Boulder County Elections Division expects to post complete and official election results and related documentation on Wednesday, November 28.
