Our Exploring Audits Series was released by in 2023. The first report in the series gives an overview of the current election audit landscape. It then introduces a new election audit framework that uses principles and standards developed by our bipartisan group of election officials to develop and conduct high-value election audits.

The series’ second set of reports provides election administrators with standards and methods for implementing high-value election audits. For each type of audit, the report provides background information, applicable standards, information on who should conduct the audit and when, and methods for conducting the audit and producing an audit report.

Our team is committed to providing communications support, guidance, resources and templates to election officials. If you have a project that you need help with, please reach out to
