Statement from Jena Griswold, Colorado Secretary of State and Chair of the Democratic Association of Secretaries of State, on the Sham Partisan Audit in Maricopa County

Sep 24, 2021

​​“The sham partisan audit that took place in Arizona concluded in what we already knew. It confirmed the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, which was one of the most secure elections in our lifetime. 

But today’s report doesn’t make this ‘fraudit’ legitimate. Not only has it been riddled with irregularities and cost Arizona taxpayers millions, it has also already done the damage of creating more distrust in our elections.

None of these fraudits are about preserving the integrity of our elections. This is about a continued coordinated attack on our democracy, all to justify future attacks on the right to vote.”
