Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota (CEIMN) have released their report and analysis of Minnesota's first post election audit. The purpose of the audit was to assess the accuracy of the state's optical scan voting machines. Working with the League of Women Voters Minnesota, CEIMN organized 208 volunteers in 70 counties to observe Minnesota's first post election audit - the nation's first statewide citizen observation of a post election audit.

Among the report's findings:

- post election audits are a viable and cost effective way to verify election outcomes
- the voting machines audited were very accurate in counting the ballots
- volunteer observers' reports provide useful feedback to improve audit protocols
- Minnesota has a compelling model to offer other states
According to CEIMN director, Mark Halvorson, "Having a front row seat in observing the audit provided us with valuable information in the shaping of the report's recommendations, such as counting methods and how the audit data was recorded. We are convinced that post election audits are key to ensuring accurate and verifiable elections. This report will not only help improve the audit protocols in Minnesota, but will help other states as they consider similar audit legislation."

Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that advocates for accurate and verifiable elections. The League of Women Voters, a non-profit, non-partisan organization, encourages informed and active participation in government and influences public plicy through education and advocacy.
