The Arizona State Senate gave the order on Thursday and shared that they will conduct a ‘’broad and detailed’’ audit.
They added that voting machines must pass a specific test, scan ballots, look for IT beaches. Moreover, they must do a hand count.
Firstly, Sen. Karen Fann (R-Ariz.), on March 18, said:
“As thousands of our voters continue to call for a thorough audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, I am pleased to report we have narrowed it down to a preferred forensic audit team,”
“We are negotiating final details on the execution of the audit and hope to have an announcement soon.”

Secondly, Fan wrote:
“Our goal is to make this a bipartisan effort with full transparency and in joint cooperation with Maricopa County officials. We’ve been reaching out to experts on election processes in Arizona and around the nation and hope to have the best and brightest involved in the audit,”
“When all the work is done, there will be a full report for the Senate and County to review. Our voters expect this audit, and it can be a big step in returning trust and confidence in our election process,”
One month ago, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason ordered that subpoenas discussed by Arizona’s state Senate are accurate. Also, they must be in force! He disputed arguments from Maricopa County officials claiming the warrants are unlawful.
These persons previously said that a few people would be enough to count the ballots, and they should be sealed.
In his ruling, Thomason wrote:
“The Court finds that the subpoenas are legal and enforceable,”
“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has the broad constitutional power to oversee elections.”
“Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters,” adding that senators can “subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures.” –he concluded.
Fann spoke about the news outlets that their steps were “never about overturning the election, it was about the integrity of the Arizona election system.”
