Members of the Arizona State Senate will release the results of the months-long forensic audit of approximately 2.1 million ballots in Maricopa County.
According to a social media post by Republicans in the Senate, the information, gathered and compiled by a third party firm, will be detailed on Friday, September 24.
In total, the report will include a hand count of the 2020 results for president and U.S. Senate, a machine count of the ballots to check against the hand count, and a review of mail-in ballot envelopes for missing or illegible signatures.
“We have had countless challenges, but we haven’t steered away from our goal to do the full forensic audit. The team we hired is working to produce a detailed report for the people of Arizona. We will hold the presentation on the audit findings on Friday, September 24, 2021 at 1pm,” the Facebook post stated.
The process, which started in April, has carried across most of the year, largely due to multiple obstacles presented to the group. For example, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) refused to comply with multiple subpoenas produced by the legislature, leading Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich to announce that MCBOS violated state law for failing to comply with legislative subpoena.
Former President Donald Trump has been supportive of the measure throughout the process.
“Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration. While this, according to the Senate, is preliminary, with results being announced at a later date, it seems that 74,243 Mail-In Ballots were counted with “no clear record of them being sent,” Trump said earlier this year, reacting to previous information presented by the firm.
