Election Recounts and Audits

The recounts called for after the results of the gubernatorial race in North Carolina and the US presidential race have had—and will continue to have—important legal, regulatory, policy, and societal implications on election processes. Over a decade ago, election recounts came to the fore of the political atmosphere with the Florida recount during the 2000 US presidential election. In the current climate, the importance of information regarding the consequences of requesting a recount, and how they are handled both legally and politically has never been higher.
