Chapter 293 - Elections
NRS 293.269937 - County clerk to test accuracy of electronic devices used to verify signatures on mail ballots; daily audit required during processing of mail ballots. [Effective January 1, 2022.]

If a county clerk uses an electronic device in an election to verify signatures on mail ballots:

1. The county clerk must conduct a test of the accuracy of the electronic device before the election. The test must be conducted in a manner that ensures the electronic device will use the same standards for determining the validity of a signature as would be used by a natural person verifying the signature pursuant to NRS 293.269927.

2. The county clerk must perform daily audits of each electronic device during the processing of mail ballots for the election. The daily audit must include a review of a sample of at least 1 percent of the signatures verified each day. The county clerk shall appoint election board officers who must not all be of the same political party to manually review the signatures. The county clerk must prepare a report of each daily audit.
