According to the GOP-led review, released on Friday, September 24, 2021, finding their ballot count increased Biden’s original vote count by 360 votes. It’s been concluded that President Biden did indeed receive more votes in Arizona’s most populous county, Maricopa county, than former President Donald Trump for the 2020 election. In fact, the hand recount for Biden exceeded the county’s original tally by 99 votes while Trump received 261 fewer votes than the the original tally.

The 2021 Maricopa County presidential ballot audit, commonly referred to as the Arizona audit, was an examination of ballots cast in Maricopa County during the 2020 United States presidential election in Arizona initiated by Arizona Senate Republicans and carried out by private firms. Begun in April 2021, the audit stirred controversy due to extensive previous efforts by Trump and his allies to overturn the election and due to assertions of rule violations and irregularities in the conduct of the count, leading to claims that the audit was essentially a disinformation campaign. In June 2021, Maggie Haberman of The New York Times and Charles Cooke of National Review reported Trump had told associates that based on the results of the audit, he would be reinstated as president in August 2021. By early August, no evidence of widespread fraud had surfaced. The auditors released a report on September 24, 2021, finding their ballot count increased Biden’s margin of victory by 360 votes.
From the beginning of the audit, several concerns surfaced, including how the audit was being conducted, its legality, the conduct of auditors, and security issues at the site. The audit spawned interest in pursuing similar efforts in other states, causing the Justice Department to warn Republican legislatures of potential violations of federal law. Conspiracy theory issues also arose as many commentators across the political spectrum, including Republicans, characterized the effort as a sham or “fraudit” that was an element of the big lie that the presidential election had been stolen from Trump.
Despite results from Arizona’s partisan election review confirming Joe Biden’s 2020 victory, Donald Trump continues his campaign of lies about the election.
