(RepublicanInformer.com)- On Thursday, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in Arizona called an emergency meeting that delayed a Senate audit of their 2020 election results. It was yet another massive hit for efforts to secure election integrity and find out what really happened during the election in one of the most controversial regions in the country.
The meeting was called at 10 am on Thursday, and officials expressed their concerns about a planned audit of their results.
“At the emergency Executive and possibly Open session the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors may consider: Legal advice regarding Board responsibilities and authority re: Elections, election equipment, audits, Senate subpoenas, and litigation,” the notice said.
“The emergency is due to the need to get Legal advice regarding newly received information from Senate concerning compliance with election related subpoenas. After being briefed in Executive Session, if needed, the Board may also consider action in an Open Session related to the above states issue(s),” it continued.
It followed a memo released the day before that confirmed the names of the third-party companies that are expected to perform the audit at the request of the Senate. The audit will focus specifically on the 2020 presidential election results after following allegations of misconduct and fraud.
The results in the county were consequential, with around 2/3 of all votes in Arizona coming from the region.
On Friday, it was then revealed that Maricopa County would refuse to allow the Arizona State Senate to use its facilities to conduct the audit.
Maricopa County is refusing to let the Arizona State Senate use its facilities to conduct the audit. I can’t figure out why the Sups are so bitter? Get better attorneys!

Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason ruled this year that 2.1 million ballots from the election in the county must be handed over for a full audit. It followed the shocking revelation from data analyst Matt Braynard that 19,997 voters had registered with the National Change of Address Database in Maricopa County, indicating that people may have voted even after moving out of state. Over half a million early voting or absentee ballots were also unreturned.
But election fraud doesn’t exist…right?
