Isn't an audit more thorough than a recount?

Each state's laws dictate how we are able to investigate the integrity of the voting system. We will use every mechanism available to us. Plus, this kind of effort has positive consequences. A national nonpartisan watchdog group, Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota, formed after Green Party 2004 presidential candidate David Cobb (the Stein/Baraka campaign manager who is managing the recount for Jill Stein) demanded a recount in Ohio that sent two election officials to jail and prompted California to ditch hackable DRE voting machines.
