Under the proivsions of Chap. 54, Sec. 109A(c), 3% of all the precincts in Massachusetts must be handcounted as part of the audit process. The law requires that precincts to be audited must be chosen in a random, publically verifiable, non-computerized drawing supervised by the Secretary of the State within 48 hours after the polls have closed. The law futher provides for a handcount of only ceryain specifies races, where more than one candidate is printed on the ballot, and a statewide question, which is also randomly selected.
