Bill Description: House Bill 1 would require that any post-election audit be conducted using a hand recount of ballots. 

Rating: +1

Does it in any way restrict public access to information related to government activity or otherwise compromise government transparency, accountability, or election integrity? Conversely, does it increase public access to information related to government activity or increase government transparency, accountability, or election integrity?

House Bill 1 would amend Section 34-1203A, Idaho Code, to say that post-election audits "shall include, at a minimum, a hand recount of the ballots subject to the audit and a comparison to the results reported by the county for any precincts, days, batches, legislative districts, and tabulation machines selected for audit." 

Election security requires verification and oversight, which is enhanced through hand recounts that can reveal errors taking place in electronic tabulation.
