Arizona has emerged as the final battlefield in the war against former President Donald Trump’s false allegations of a rigged election in 2020.
Republicans in the state Senate have been pushing for an audit of the 2020 vote in Maricopa County for the past week, a huge undertaking that has delighted Trump and his supporters while infuriating Democrats who have tried to stop it.

Here are five things you should know about the 2020 election results audit:
The audit is the latest attempt by Trump supporters in the state to cast doubt on the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, despite the fact that several audits conducted since November concluded that the vote was correctly counted.
What’s different this time is that the audit is being conducted by the state Senate itself. Republican state senators used their subpoena power to demand that election officials hand over all 2.1 million ballots, voting machines, and voter registration records in Maricopa County.
Despite the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ legal attempts to stop the subpoenas, a judge ruled that they were legitimate and ordered officials to hand over the records.
The audit by the state Senate is generally regarded as a political stunt designed to appease Trump backers, many of whom believe the 2020 election will be stolen from him. In reality, no proof has been found to support those arguments.
Who is the perpetrator?
Senate Republicans in Arizona have retained Cyber Ninjas, a little-known Florida-based company, to conduct the audit, which critics argue is a red flag.
Cyber Ninjas claims to specialize in “all areas of application defense, ranging from your traditional web application to mobile or thick client applications,” according to its website.
