MARICOPA COUNTY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — Maricopa County is getting ready to push again in opposition to the leaders of the continuing election audit, trying into baseless claims of voter fraud. County election officers stated they anticipate to launch an internet site later this week that refutes current allegations made throughout an replace on the audit.
One of many prime allegations is that Maricopa County obtained extra early ballots than had been mailed to voters. The chief of the audit, Doug Logan, claimed throughout a Senate briefing final week that there have been about 74,000 extra early ballots counted than requested.
Marcus Milam, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Recorders workplace, stated their data point out 2.3 million early ballots had been requested, which is greater than the 1.9 million returned.
