Evidence-based post-election audits

Free & Fair has created a risk-limiting audit (RLA) system that was used statewide in Colorado beginning with the November 2017 general election. First developed in 2008, RLAs promote evidence-based confidence in election outcomes by comparing a random sampling of paper ballots to their corresponding digital versions. This was the first time anywhere in the United States that risk-limiting audits are conducted on a regular, statewide basis. Learn more about RLAs and how the new Colorado system works here.
