yourtown uses an Independent Auditor from BDO Australia who acts as the scrutineer during the draw process.
The Auditor is responsible for inspecting balls and checking them before they are put into the compartments. This is to ensure that all balls have not been tampered with, or damaged in anyway. A spare set of balls, which is kept in a secure locked storage is available should there be a need to make any changes. If a change is required then the full set of balls is removed and replaced.
The Independent Auditor also checks the numbers of each ball and ensures that they are provided in each compartment in accordance with how many tickets are available in the draw. This differs from draw to draw.
The draw can be attended by members of the public and licencing agencies i.e. State Government Departments who have issued permits can attend to oversee the draw process at any time without notice.
