§ 20841. Automated Recounts on Direct Recording Electronic Voting Systems Using Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail Paper Copies.
(a) The voter requesting the recount of votes cast on a direct recording electronic voting system may request that it be conducted based on an automated scan and tabulation of the voted ballots directly from the voter verified paper audit trail paper copies. An automated scan shall not be used unless the Secretary of State has tested and approved the automated scan method as part of the certification of the voting system.
(b) Prior to conducting the recount of voter verified paper audit trail paper copies from the direct recording electronic voting system, a logic and accuracy test limited to the contest subject to recount shall be conducted, using a test pattern and a test verified paper audit trail paper roll, on each automated scan and tabulation device to be used in the recount. The test shall be conducted publicly, subject to any limit made necessary by space limitations on the number of additional public observers beyond those that must be accommodated under section 20816. The elections official shall make the results of the logic and accuracy test, as well as the test pattern and test paper roll used for the test, available for inspection by the requestor, spokespersons and observers at the recount location before the conclusion of the recount.
(c) Once all vote results have been scanned and captured from each scanning and tabulating device used for the recount, the elections official shall generate a report for each precinct detailing the aggregated direct recording electronic voting system vote results for the recounted contest.
