Affidavit Signature Audit Results :
In accordance with Utah Code Annotated §20A-3-302(7), the Lieutenant Governor’s Office established procedures to conduct an audit of affidavit signatures for mail ballots.
The following vote by-mail jurisdictions performed this audit by comparing voters’ affidavit signatures on ballot envelopes with voters’ signatures in the statewide voter registration database for a second or third time
Jurisdiction | Affidavit Signatures Audited :
Box Elder County 2
Carbon County 20
Davis County 232
Grand County 37
Iron County 50
Salt Lake County 805
San Juan County 50
Sanpete County 20
Sevier County 49
Summit County 90
Utah County 400
Wasatch County 74
Weber County 97
A total of 1,926 affidavit signatures were audited.
The audit determined the following :
** 1,922 (99.8%) affidavit signatures were correctly identified as either a match or nonmatch during the initial verification process; and
** 4 (0.2%) affidavit signatures were identified as a match during the initial verification process, but they were identified as non-matches during the audit.
The benefit of any audit process is that it provides an opportunity to identify areas where improvement can be made. As a result of this audit, county clerks have learned that the following steps can be taken to improve policies and procedures
** Establishing new criteria for staff members during the initial signature inspection that standardizes the measurement of the signature comparison;
** Increasing the percentage of signatures that are audited on a daily basis; and
** Adding supplementary training for staff on signature verification.
With the addition of these improvements, we continue to be confident in the policies and procedures followed by county clerk staff in providing a secure voting method that voters and candidates can trust.
The following pages of this document are the individual reports for each county that performed an affidavit signature audit.
