TO THE QUALIFIED ELECTORS OF ROSCOMMON COUNTY:

 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT A RISK LIMITING AUDIT WILL BE HELD FOR THE NOVEMBER 3, 2020 ELECTION ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 2021 AT 2:30 PM, ROSCOMMON TOWNSHIP HALL, 8555 KNAPP ROAD, HOUGHTON LAKE, MICHIGAN 48629,

PURPOSE:

Risk-limiting audits take a statistical sample of manually reviewed paper ballots and compare the results to the tabulated totals. The sample uses a formula based on the margin of the contest being audited, to calculate a sufficient sample size for audit to confirm the outcome of the election. Because the Presidential race in the General election was closer than the Democratic and Republican Presidential Primary races that were audited in March, a much larger sample will be drawn for this election. Statewide, approximately 18,000 ballots of the almost 5.6 million ballots cast will be randomly selected throughout the state. Most counties and jurisdictions in the state will have at least one ballot selected. As in the Presidential Primary pilot, those jurisdictions with more ballots will see a larger number of ballots selected.

Roscommon Township Hall, 8555 Knapp Road, Houghton Lake, MI is currently closed to the public.  If you would like to attend the Township’s portion of the Risk Limiting Audit, it will be held in the basement at the hall.  Please follow all MDHHS rules regarding face coverings and social distancing. 

To comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), any citizen requesting accommodation to attend this meeting and/or to obtain this notice in alternate formats, please contact the Township at (989) 422-4116.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact Roscommon Township at (989) 422-4116 or clerk at clerk@roscommontownship.com .  A copy of this Notice will be posted in the Roscommon Township Hall, 8555 Knapp Road, Houghton Lake, MI 48629.
