The Arizona Senate will receive the audit report on the Maricopa County election on Sept. 24 at 1 p.m. in a public presentation on the floor of the chamber, Senate President Karen Fann said.
Her announcement was sent to fellow senators after a judge on Thursday pressed a Senate attorney to tell him when the “final” report would be available.
Fann, R-Prescott, said the long-awaited audit will cover all three aspects of the examination of the county’s election results:
- A hand count of the 2020 results for president and U.S. Senate, done by the Senate’s contractor, the Cyber Ninjas;
- A machine count of the ballots Fann ordered in July to check against the Ninjas’ count, as she said at the time the Ninja count does not match the official results; and
- A review of mail-in ballot envelopes for missing or illegible signatures.
