Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson, who came to Cache County for the audit, said the all 29 counties in Utah participate in post-election audits to verify the accuracy of ballots. The Lt.

The signatures on the ballots are then verified, and officials make sure the votes were accurately counted in a public setting.
