Enfield was one of 16 randomly selected towns to have results of its Sept. 10 election primary audited, the secretary of state's office announced Thursday.
According to a statement released by the office, the audit will be conducted in Enfield, by the Enfield registrar of voters, and will require each ballot cast in the primary to be hand counted and matched against the reported number of ballots.
Per state law, audits must be performed for 10 percent of precincts using optical scanning machines in any given election.
The audit can begin as soon as Sept. 25, and must be completed by Oct. 11, according to the state.
"It's our duty to audit the machine totals from these primaries as we do following every election to ensure the accuracy of our optical scanners, Secretary of State Denise Merrill said Thursday in a prepared statement.
Enfield's Sept. 10 saw the Republican Party's endorsed candidates defeated by a group of petitioning candidates, which included incumbent Mayor Scott Kaupen.
