Montana's audit provisions became law in 2009. While audit results are binding on official results, they do not lead to a full recount. Audits are office-specific, and include statewide, federal, and legislative contests, as well as a statewide ballot measure.
The precincts to be audited must be chosen not earlier than seven days after the election but no later than nine days after the election. The audit must be completed at least one day before the official canvass.
