ABSTRACT
Risk-limiting audits provide statistical assurance that election outcomes are correct by manually examining portions of the audit trail—paper ballots or voter-verifiable paper records. This article sketches two types of risk-limiting audits, ballot-polling audits and comparison audits, and gives example computations. These audits do not require in-house statistical expertise.
