The States That Are Auditing Their 2020 Election Results

Election

With the 2020 election being one of the most contentious elections in a generation, many states are still investigating their election results. The four states conducting audits of various aspects of their 2020 election results are Arizona, Georgia, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania.

At the Veterans, Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix, Arizona, an extensive forensic audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election results is currently taking place. The Arizona Senate began the auditing process back in January due to widespread reports of fraud and irregularities in Maricopa County. However, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors refused to comply with the Arizona Senate until Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason ordered them to do so on February 26, 2021.

The comprehensive audit of all of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots from the 2020 election is being conducted by the security firm Cyber Ninjas. The firm uses a unique process to examine the ballots that include identifying differences in ballot text, color, and thickness, as well as inspecting mail-in ballots for folds and verifying the signatures on each ballot. If the process is proven effective at identifying fraud and anomalies, it will likely be used by other states as a model for audits of their own 2020 election results. The Maricopa County forensic audit is currently over 60% completed and is expected to be completed by the end of June.

In Georgia, 531 prominent Republicans recently sent a letter to Governor Brian Kemp urging him to launch a full forensic audit into the state’s 2020 election results. The letter was signed by various Georgia Republicans, ranging from grassroots conservative activists to Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer.

News of the bombshell letter comes as an audit of all of Fulton County, Georgia’s absentee ballots are set to begin. According to a recent ruling from Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero, approximately 147,000 absentee ballots from Fulton County, Georgia’s November 2020 election must be unsealed and audited.

The ruling came after a lawsuit was filed in the Fulton County Superior Court that alleges extensive instances of voter fraud and voting irregularities occurred in Fulton County during the 2020 election. If the audit in Fulton County produces evidence of voter fraud or voting irregularities, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp will be compelled to authorize a statewide forensic audit that emulates the one currently being conducted in Arizona.

In the small town of Windham, New Hampshire, discrepancies in their 2020 election results could have statewide or nationwide implications. New Hampshire election officials recently conducted a post-election audit in the town of Windham due to major differences between reported election results on Election Night and reported election results after a hand recount. On Election Night, election results showed that Republicans swept all four of Windham’s state representative races. However, Democrat Kristi St. Laurent lost a seat in the New Hampshire House of Representatives by just 24 votes. As a result, she requested a recount.

The results of the recount did not go in her favor. Following a hand recount of the election results in New Hampshire’s House of Representatives Rockingham County district seven-race, the margins between each candidate changed significantly. The vote totals for each of the four Republican candidates on the ballot in the race increased by around 300, whereas Democrat St. Laurent’s vote total decreased by nearly 100.

While the recount did not change the overall outcome of the election, the major discrepancies between the results tabulated by voting machines and the results reported by the hand recount appear to show a potentially major flaw in the voting machines. For this reason, the New Hampshire Senate unanimously passed S.B. 43 on April 12, 2021. The bill authorized an audit of ballots and voting machines in Windham to determine why the reported results on Election Night and the results reported after the recount differed tremendously. A report that details the results of the audit will be published by July 11, 2021. If the major discrepancies identified in the Windham recount are confirmed by the audit, a statewide audit of the 2020 New Hampshire election results will likely be imminent.

Although there is currently no official outline for a statewide audit of Pennsylvania’s 2020 election results, a delegation of three Pennsylvania lawmakers toured the site of the Arizona audit last week. Members of the delegation included Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rob Kauffman, Pennsylvania State Senator Cris Dush, and Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano.

After the tour, the delegation members called for an audit similar to the Arizona audit to take place in Pennsylvania. To quote Sen. Doug Mastriano, “I’m convinced it needs to happen here…Should an audit happen in Pennsylvania, the Arizona model is the one.” This move is obviously popular with the people of Pennsylvania, considering the fact that over 50,000 Pennsylvania residents have already signed a petition calling for a full forensic audit of their state’s 2020 election results. With various audits in three other states nearly complete, Pennsylvania has the opportunity to conduct a forensic audit of their 2020 election results that incorporates the best aspects of each preceding audit.

Since there is no precedent for the post-election audits being conducted in numerous states, the future is still unclear. What is clear is that there was something extremely unique about the 2020 election that warrants these unconventional audits across America.

I can not believe you call this “coverage”. You only list 5 states (Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire) are doing recounts!. What about the 27 who have automatic recounts and 43 who, voters/politicians can request recounts/Audits (and who are/were they?).
And you want me to subtribe? Not worth it based on this ariticle

EVERY STATE NEEDS TO AUDIT!!!!!!!!!!! EVIL WILL NEVER WIN IN THE END…THAT’S FOR SURE!!

Every state needs to conduct an audit of the 2020 election results. 80 million voters cannot ALL be wrong. The news media keeps saying things like “Republicans in Virginia continue to speak of the false allegations of voter fraud.” FALSE by whose reckonings? Something is only false if it is proven to be false.

While I am thrilled about the audits, it is ridiculous that they did not happen much, much earlier. and we would not be in the mess this country is now in.

I am thrilled that this many states are conducting these audits. This is the first time ever that the swing states stopped counting at the same time on election night. Note that Trump was winning each state before the halt in counting. Some states took longer to collect enough votes so they could announce Trump the loser. I truly hope that these states will carefully investigate all the ballots and the machines that were not supposed to be hooked to the internet so it was impossible for them to be able to be interfered with by other countries.

The moment Mike Pence signed off on the fraudulent electors presented by the corrupted Key States, it was game over…An ILLEGAL 2020 Presidential Election was allowed to stand on Jan 6, 2021, regardless of how it happened. All of it was well planned long in advance & this is why Nancy Pelosi was so sure of herself when asked if Trump would ever win a 2nd term, long before there was a Democrat presidential nominee… She obviously knew something way back then that nobody else even faintly knew…The 1/6/21 insurrection at the capital was well planned in advance too. It was a ” false flag ” event from the get go & video backs this up & it NEVER was a coincidence that the AZ elector fraud was presented & the PA fraudulent elector evidence never got heard whilst the breach occurred at precisely the right moment for the grand illusion, aka FALSE OPTICS…
The ENTIRE Democrat Party is still pushing this FALSE narrative along with Facebook & Twitter & their fellow partners in crime, the FAKE NEWS, i.e. MSM…
Both audio & video tells an entirely different storyline that is still being perpetuated by the criminals currently running this nation…
By most accounts we now have a weak kneed military that is standing down with total inaction on their part for all to clearly see…If this continues much longer, We The People have lost our nation.

We must as a nation in all 50 states conduct a full forensic audit as done in Maricopa County Arizona. We the people deserve the truth of the actual legal votes in the 2020 Presidential Election. This has never been done before however for the sake of our Constitution and the people of the USA , We demand this be done!! ????????

So now what do we do? Biden is not the legal President but he will still be able to destroy our Constitution let our borders be overrun and carry on Obama’s agenda for three and a half more years. I don’t believe that or accept that.

I personally would like to see all states audited. Publish the results comparatively with the 2020 election results of each state . I would like an unconventional reaction and action from the people for correction and prosecution.

There is a number of reasons I personally don’t trust the 2020 election results and I believe in person voting with a valid I.D. Should be required everywhere

If it is found that the election was rigged by the Democrats, three people will need to be impeached and convicted in this order; Biden, Harris, Pelosi, and it may not stop there. That is a pretty tall order.

It truly is a tall order because Obama, Biden, Brennan, Comey, Schiff, HRC, Ratcliff, Rice, Wray & so many others are still walking free…These individuals & so many others deserve to be tried & convicted in a military tribunal & then hung by the neck…I wouldn’t waste a bullet on any of them…
God bless America.
