Maryland will be the first state to conduct a 100 percent, statewide post-election audit.

The Maryland State Board of Elections chose ClearAudit to conduct the audit. 

“I look forward to working with [Maryland State Board of Elections State Administrator] Linda Lamone and her staff to ensure the results of the election can be presented to citizens, candidates, parties and the media with complete transparency and utter confidence," said Clear Ballot CEO Larry Moore. "Our mission is to bridge the gap between perception and reality and help build trust in America’s voting systems.”

The audit will begin Friday, Nov. 11 and be completed prior to the local and state certification submission deadline for results.
