A contractor hired by Arizona’s state Senate to oversee the recount of 2.1 million ballots in the county that includes the metro Phoenix area wants a judge to keep its methods for ensuring ballot privacy secret.
UPDATE: Arizona Democrats won't put up a $1 million bond required to halt an audit of Maricopa County's 2020 election. As a result, a judge's order to halt the audit won't be enforced. A lawyer for the Democrats says the bond is too risky.
Maricopa County will deliver its election equipment to Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Wednesday and then cart 2.1 million ballots from the November election to the site Thursday so Republicans in the state Senate can recount the ballots and audit the tabulation machines.
