What is the difference between a recount and an audit?

A:

A recount is a full recount, by hand wherever possible, of all ballots cast. Audits are not full recounts. An audit reviews a random sample of the ballots cast, theoretically providing confidence that voting equipment and procedures were functioning properly. Audit laws vary from state to state and are generally not strong enough to be relied upon to detect errors -- even errors grave enough to alter election results!
