Secretary of the State Denise Merrill has randomly selected voting precincts to have results audited following the November 3 election. Five percent of the polling places that use optical scan machines are subject to the audit. Those hand counted ballots will be matched against vote totals from optical scan machines. There were 743 polling locations so 38 primary and 11 alternate locations were chosen at random. The races to be audited will be selected locally by the Town Clerk. One of the primary locations is Reed Intermediate School in Newtown. Alternate locations include Huckleberry Hill School in Brookfield, and three schools in Danbury--Westside Middle School Academy, Pembroke School Gym and Danbury High School Gym.
