It’s finally happening friends!
Maricopa County Election Department is moving election machines to the Veterans Memorial Stadium where they will be audited.
Their not just delivering equipment, over 2.1 million ballots will be making their way to the stadium too.
Election officials also announced that the auditing of both ballots and machines will be completely transparent.
OANN will film the entire auditing process on live camera feeds through their website azaudit.org.
How awesome is that!

The Associated Press covered the activity going on in Maricopa County and had this to say:
Maricopa County delivered its election equipment and 2.1 million ballots cast in November’s election to Veterans Memorial Stadium so Republicans in the state Senate can recount the ballots and audit the tabulation machines.
The deliveries that start Wednesday will kick off weeks of counting at the fairgrounds site rented by the Republican-controlled Senate.
The county refused to allow the Senate to use its facilities after losing a court fight set off by a Senate subpoena for the election materials.
They even have a helicopter watching the trucks hauling the ballots and election equipment :
RIGHT NOW: Ballots and tabulation machines are on the move for the Maricopa County 2020 election audit. 2.1 million votes from last year's election are expected to be counted by hand at Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

I wish there were helicopters in the skies on November 3rd…
Fox 10 News didn’t stay behind and had this to add:
The audit is being conducted at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, and all of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots cast in the election will be re-counted by hand.
The audit team arrived on site Monday.
Senate President Karen Fann, who’s heading the audit, has not made herself available for questions.
“The president has said all along she’s going to make sure it’s a process that’s above board, that folks can follow along. I think she’s expecting it to begin later this week,” says J.D. Mesnard, a Republican state senator.
A FOX 10 news team was told to leave the coliseum on Monday morning as doors were shut.
Will Maricopa County be the beginning of a domino effect or are the machines and ballots being delivered already tainted.
I guess we’ll find out soon!
