The Arizona Audit officially completed both the hand count and paper evaluation inspections on Friday.
The audit workers will now vacate Veterans Memorial Coliseum and prepare to deliver a report to the Arizona Senate.
Technology consultants hired by Arizona Senate Republicans to probe the 2020 election have finished counting and photographing nearly 2.1 million ballots from Maricopa County.
“Audit Update: Paper examination and counting are finished today,” the audit team wrote in a post on Twitter. “Thank you to all the amazing Arizona volunteers who made this audit possible!”
Earlier this afternoon, volunteers slammed a box closed and cheered in celebration after the final ballots were inspected.
On Monday, we will know the true number of ballots that were cast in Maricopa County. If it is drastically different than the number of certified ballots, as expected with the discrepancies found, there will be severe consequences for Doug Ducey and Katie Hobbs.
The Arizona State Senate will need to consider decertifying the results if they cannot prove that Biden was the winner. Attorney General Mark Brnovich will need to initiate an investigation into those involved in the scam and the cover-up.
Final report will come by July?
A final report of the findings is still weeks to months away, said Ken Bennett, a former Republican secretary of state working on the effort.
That effort at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum is what has wrapped up. But Bennett said other audit work is ongoing, including the evaluation of data from election servers and voting machines. He said he expects a final report by Labor Day, but it could come as soon as late July.
“I think too much emphasis has been put on the tasks that are happening here at the Coliseum, but these are not the only two tasks of the audit,” Bennett said.
