Audit Count 80% Complete
The hand-count phase of the Maricopa County, Ariz., forensic audit should be completed by the end of the week, says former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, while paper evaluations is not expected to be done until the end of the month. Through Monday, Bennett said the count was 80 percent complete.
Bennett, the Arizona Senate’s liason to the audit, says he doesn’t expect final results for several weeks. He says that following paper evaluations, the audit will look to verify thousands of signatures to make sure blank ballots didn’t slip through the mail-in process. “The signature on the envelope is the voter’s affidavit that their ballot is inside,” he says. “And we’ve heard rumors that there may have been thousands of envelopes allowed to go through and opened, and ballots counted without any signature whatsoever on the envelope.”
While the count goes smoothly, Bennett says the audit team is still running into roadblocks securing the routers and passwords to the voting machines. Here’s more with Bennett in his interview with The Gateway Pundit, courtesy of Robert David Steele #UNRIG ELECTIONS.
