Youngkin wants audit of voting machines ahead of Virginia election
Youngkin is running against Democratic former Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
Virginia's Republican gubernatorial candidate Glen Youngkin announced Tuesday that he wants an audit of the commonwealth's voting machines ahead of the November election.
Youngkin is going up against Democratic former Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
According to The Hill, Youngkin spoke at a rally and said the audit is necessary in order to ensure transparency ahead of the election.
“I just think, like, I grew up in a world where you have an audit every year, in businesses you have an audit," he said. "So let's just audit the voting machines, publish it so everybody can see it."
Youngkin also called for other key voting reforms, such as the Elections Department being moved out of the governor’s office, to make it less political.
Governor Ralph Northam’s office has not addressed Youngkin’s request.
According to RealClearPolitics, McAuliffe is ahead by five points, a measure that falls within the margin of error.
