Recount Procedures (HB 2133)

Legislative Action Summary

In the case of a recount election in Virginia (whether local or statewide) HB 2133 would require 1% of each voting locality's ballots to be counted by hand and tested against two voting machines used at that location. If any results in that sample turn out to have been miscounted by the machine, it would trigger a full recount for that voting location.
