Another State Prepares for Audit of Controversial Voting Machines


New Hampshire will audit the voting machines used in one town during the 2020 elections.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu on Thursday said he intends to sign a bill calling for an audit of the machines used in the town of Windham, according to the Washington Examiner.

“I think they designed the bill very well,” he said. “And I fully intend on signing it and moving that forward as soon as we can.”

The bill authorizes a recount and forensic analysis of votes tallied by AccuVote optical scanning machines, according to Patch.com.

The AccuVote machines in New Hampshire use Global Election Management software and were made by Unisyn Voting Solutions and then by Global Elections Systems Inc., which is no longer in operation. The intellectual property of the AccuVote machines and its election management system is now owned by Dominion Voting Systems, which has been involved in election-related disputes in other states.

In November, eight candidates ran for four state representative seats to represent the town at the Statehouse.

About 10,000 people voted. When the votes were counted initially, Democratic Kristi St. Laurent landed in fifth place, 24 votes shy of gaining the fourth seat.
