“We are citizens not subjects,” AZ state Rep Mark Finchem said. “We have the right to scrutinize our elections.”
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors demanded an end to the Arizona Senate-led audit of the 2020 election in the populous county that includes Phoenix, a significant new stand by the Republican-led group against the review that former President Donald Trump and his allies have cited to further claim the contest was stolen.
Board members issued their defiant response after holding a meeting Monday afternoon to address questions raised by Senate President Karen Fann in a letter to Chairman Jack Sellers regarding the audit, which includes a review of the county’s 2.1 million ballots and election equipment, raising “serious issues” auditors claimed to have found during their work. Among them, Fann said, was the county’s failure to provide virtual copies of Wi-Fi routers and allegations that someone deleted a main database from the Election Management System.
“These accusations are false, defamatory, and beneath the dignity of the Senate,” the board wrote in a 13-page letter signed by all five members. “They are an insult to the dedicated public servants in the Maricopa County Elections Department and Office of the Recorder, who work incredibly long hours conducting the County’s elections with integrity and honor.”
A Pennsylvania county is experiencing issues scanning Republican ballots during local elections and primary races, according to officials.
“Chris Varney, Judge of Elections says they were initially under the impression that it was a problem with all ballots, but then determined it was only a problem with Republican ballots,” local news reported. The election official was unaware how many other precincts were experiencing the same issue, but noted it was occurring in numerous locations across Fayette County.
The Fayette County Bureau of Elections confirmed the reports of precincts across the county rendered unable to scan ballots.
“The solution provided by Fayette County officials was to collect ballots from voters and store them in the back of voting machines — but not to scan any of them to ensure the process was handled in a fair manner,” reports added.
