Paper Vote Scanning Accuracy in the 2020 Election

Currently waiting for a response from ACT Electoral Commission, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear ACT Electoral Commission,

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2016, I apply for access to documents held by the Commission, including correspondence, relating to paper vote scanning accuracy in the 2020 election.

I apply for access to documents about:

Manual checking of scanned paper ballots, including:
* the number of scans flagged for manual checking
* the number of votes considered formal and informal after manual checking
* estimates or discussion of the number of ballot papers which were actually ambiguous, but were not flagged by the scanner for manual checking

Audits of paper ballot scanning, including:
* the number of formal and informal ballots audited
* the number of errors found
* any reviews or changes to the audit method or process

The overall accuracy of the process, including:
* comparisons of the ACT's electronic scanning and counting accuracy with the accuracy of scanned or manual recounts in other jurisdictions
* any errors discovered in paper ballot scans or counts

Yours faithfully,

T Wilson-Brown

Spence, Rohan, ACT Electoral Commission
